Police are looking for Samuel Oraka, 44, who is originally from Angola, and has gone missing after hurting his wife.

Ifeoma Oraka is being treated at a hospital for burns on her neck, chest and arm.

Ifeoma Oraka told police that after Samuel Oraka poured the hot water on her, he pressed her to the floor and started rubbing her body with his bare hand.

“My skin was peeling as he was rubbing my body, I was in a lot of of pain,” she said.
