The police have arraigned a 30-year-old woman, Kudirat Balogun, before Tinubu Magistrates’ Court, Lagos for allegedly stabbing a tenant living in her father’s property with a broken bottle.
Balogun, who resides at Iduwo Eletu Street, Awoyaya area of Ibeju Lekki, was charged with two counts of conspiracy and attempted murder.
The prosecution counsel, ASP Ben Ekundayo, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on February 23, at about 7:00a.m. He said the defendant conspired with her brother, who is presently at large, and stabbed a tenant, Mr Chukma Abuza, with a broken bottle in the stomach during an argument over fetching water from the well.
Ekundayo said that the defendant also used an iron rod to inflict life-threatening injuries on the complainant.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 230 and 411 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015. (Text courtesy The Guardian)
