She told the police:
“Ray Jackson who is Dayton’s father told my landlord that he will douse me with acid if I continued seeing his daughter. As a result, I am now scared. I live in constant fear.
Jackson came to my home with her bags saying she no longer wanted to stay with her husband but she wanted to stay with me.
She also brought a laptop which she had stolen from her husband. I know homosexuality is not allowed in the country but it’s only fair that she gets arrested as well because we are in this together, besides it’s something that I had no control of.
I love her and she loves me as well, so I will not leave her because of her father."
