A Nigerian mother Mary Joseph has been arrested for bathing her neighbour Jumoke with hot water at Oshodi area of Lagos State.
The whole fight began when when the attacker, Mary alleged that the victim, whose turn it was to clean the drainage and surrounding of their house, spilled filthy water and dirt into the water she was going to use to bathe her children.
This resulted in hot arguments. In annoyance, the suspect picked the pot of water she was boiling and emptied its content on Jumoke.
Neighbors rushed out and prevented the suspect from running away. She was later whisked to Akinpelu Police Station in Oshodi while Jumoke was rushed to a nearby hospital to receive treatment.
When asked why she attacked her co-tenant with boiling water, Mary blamed the devil for her action.
“I am struggling to feed four children and her, but now, I have been told to bring N200,000 for bill at a private hospital when I don’t even have N5,000 in my account. My wife has finished me. Where will I run to in this coronavirus lockdown?” . Husband of the attacker, Mr. Joseph said.
