Nigerian woman jailed 9yrs in the UK for burning lover's private parts with a hot iron
A Nigerian woman who burned a man's legs and genitals with a hot iron during sex has been jailed for nine years.
Kenya Alozie, 31, was having sex with a man in his 30s at an address in Plumstead, south-east London, on May 15 when she used a hot iron to assault him in what police describe as a "calculated attack".She also attacked the man with a broken bottle causing him a number of serious injuries including deep cuts and burns.
He has since undergone a number of hospital treatments and surgery.
Alozie, of no fixed abode, was sentenced at Woolwich Crown Court on Tuesday after being found guilty of GBH with intent.At the time of the attack, Alozie's student visa, that she obtained to study at Coventry University, was due to expire and she was due to return to her family in Nigeria at the end of May.
Police arrested her on May 24 just after she boarded a flight at Heathrow Airport and charged her with the offence the following day. Dectective Duncan Clark from Greenwich police, said:
Alozie committed a calculated and pre-planned attack. She ensured she had a broken bottle to hand and a hot iron to strike the victim and seriously harm him.
The sentence imposed clearly reflects the seriousness of this extremely violent attack.
