A Nigerian woman is set to spend Christmas in jail after being convicted of burning a man’s genitals with a hot iron while they were having sex.

Kenya Alozie (31) was jailed for nine years after being found guilty of grievous bodily harm with intent at Woolwich Crown Court in the UK this week.

Former Coventry University student Alozie was arrested after attacking a man in his 30s at an address in Plumstead, Greenwich in May of this year.

Her trial heard that the while couple were having sex, Alozie took a hot iron to the man’s legs and genitals. She then attacked him with a broken bottle.

The court heard how the victim received multiple burns and deep cuts, which have required multiple surgeries to treat.

At the time of the attack, Alozie – of no fixed abode – was expected to return to her family in Nigeria at the end of May after her student visa was due to expire.

She was living in Plumstead with friends.

Alozie was detained on May 24 at Heathrow Airport as she was preparing to leave the country, following an investigation into the attack by Greenwich Police,.

Detective Constable Duncan Clark 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.”
