A 43-year-old woman, Modinat Jide, on Thursday appeared before an Ebute Meta Magistratesí Court in Lagos, charged with slashing her friendís face with a blade.
The accused, who hawks sachet water, was arraigned on a charge of unlawful assault, but pleaded not guilty.
The Prosecutor, Sgt. Jimah Iseghede, told the court that the accused committed the offence on April 18, at about 11.15 a.m., at Jebba Pako Estate, Okobaba in Ebute Meta.
Iseghede told the court that the accused claimed that the complainant, Wunmi Ajoke, had alleged that her husband was not the father of her new born child.
He said that the accused had, consequently, used a sharp blade to slash the face of Ajoke for daring to call her promiscuous.
