A housewife, identified as Amudat Shosanya, who allegedly stabbed her husband’s lover with a broken bottle has been granted bail before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court.
The 39-year-old who resides at Jebba Street in Ebute Meta, Lagos State was charged for assault before Magistrate Helen Omisore.
The prosecutor in charge of the case, Mariam Dauda, explained to the court that the accused committed the offence on December 13 at about 11:27am, at Jebba Street in Ebute Meta.
She said that the accused stormed the house of the complainant, on one Remilekun Adeshina and stabbed her, alleging she was the reason her husband was maltreating her.
