Move over Lorena Bobbitt
GREAT BALLS AFIRE!
WIFE'S CHEAT REVENGE
A Queens nurse allegedly channeled Lorena Bobbitt as she exacted revenge yesterday on her hubby for his infidelity.
The woman, feeling burned over her husband's cheating, woke him up by pouring a "big pot" of scalding water over his genitals, the victim told The Post.
"I was in bed, I was fast asleep . . . She came into the bedroom and poured hot water all over me," Emmanuel "Ojo" Ojofeitimi, 67, said last night from his hospital bed, where he was being treated for second- and third-degree burns over 30 percent of his body.
"I didn't know what had happened. By the time I woke up, the skin was falling off," Ojofeitimi said.
"It sounded like a woman screaming," a neighbor in their Springfield Gardens building said of the 6 a.m. attack.
Ojofeitimi's wife, Oyindamola, 67, was charged with assault and harassment and was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 at her arraignment last night.
Her lawyer, Jennifer Michaelson, said Ojofeitimi "had a history of abusing her both physically and psychologically."
A law-enforcement source said Oyindamola had been "upset about a recent infidelity."
Ojofeitimi said his wife was wielding a large hunk of wood expecting that he would attack her after she scalded him.
"I don't know whether she flipped out, or something happened . . . I didn't anticipate this at all," he said.
Ojofeitimi, a Nigerian immigrant and nurse himself who previously was vice president of patient-care services at New Island Hospital in Bethpage, LI, said his wife has been steaming about his cheating.
Despite his claims of being faithful lately, Oyindamola, who has four grown children with him, "never lets it go," he said.
"She does not know how to forgive and forget; she doesn't let anything go by," he said. "If I come home late from work, she's always assuming that I'm with a woman."
But Ojofeitimi said his wife of 21 years, who is from Grenada, had never gotten violent before.
The attack echoed Bobbitt's infamous assault on then-husband John Wayne Bobbitt, when she hacked off his penis as he slept.
"I just jumped up and called 911," Ojofeitimi said.
He said Oyindamola put cold compresses on his burns, which ranged from his knees to his abdomen and also were on his arm, back and face. Ojofeitimi was taken to Nassau University Medical Center, where cops interviewed him and then arrested his wife.
But Ojofeitimi said, "I will file for divorce, but I don't want her in jail."
