An Ado-Ekiti magistrate court on Friday ordered that a 30-year-old woman, Idowu Akomolafe, who allegedly slashed a woman’s face who accused her of having extra-marital affair, be remanded in a correctional facility.
The police charged Akomolafe, whose address was not provided, with attempted murder.
The magistrate, Mrs Kehinde Awosika, who did not take the plea of Akomolafe, ordered the police to return the case file to the Office of the Lagos Director of Public Prosecutions.
Awosika adjourned the case until Jan. 16, for mention.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Sgt. Samson Osubu, told the court that on Nov. 2, in Ado-Ekiti, the defendant attempted to kill a 42-year-old woman, Denike Olugboye.
Osubu said the defendant used a razor blade and slashed Olugboye on her body, when she called her out in public about having extra-marital affair with her (Denike’s) husband. (NAN)
