A woman has been stabbed by her female neighbour, a housewife, for allegedly exposing her illicit affair with a lover.
The 30-year-old woman, who is also a housewife, Adedoyin Adeniyi, was stabbed in the face by Zainab Fatai, for allegedly exposing her adulterous life to her husband at their residence on Olu Abiodun street, Ijegun, Lagos.
It was gathered that the two women used to be very close and knew some secrets about each other, until their relationship hit the rock. Trouble allegedly started after Zainab’s husband, Asis, was informed that his wife has two children for two different men, PM Express gathered.
Zainab, got annoyed after her husband confronted her over the alleged adultery and provided evidence. She suspected that Adedoyin, her confidant, must have disclosed to her husband that she went to a hotel with her secret lover, adding that it was only Adedoyin that knew her movements.
She reportedly broke a bottle and stabbed her in the face. The drama was reported at Isheri Oshun division which led to Zainab’s arrest.
However, Adedoyin denied that she was the person who exposed the truth to Zainab’s husband, but she insisted that she was the only neighbour who knew her “dirty secret”.
Zainab was charged before a Magistrates’ court sitting in Ejigbo on Tuesday with breach of peace, assault occasioning harm under the Criminal Code. She pleaded guilty and begged for leniency, as the presiding Magistrate, Mr A. A. Fashola ordered her to be remanded in prison custody.
The matter was adjourned till 12 December, 2016 for fact and sentence.
