An evangelist, Mrs. Blessing Israel, of Christian Pentecostal Mission (CPM), has been sent to the Kirikiri Medium Prison, Apapa, Lagos, for allegedly stabbing her neighbour’s daughter with a pair of scissors.

Blessing was alleged to have stabbed Sadiat Akeeb, 17, in the face, during a quarrel. P.M.News gathered that the woman earlier had a quarrel with the parents of the girl, at their 267, Pipeline Road, Idimu, Lagos, residence.

Investigations revealed that the incident occurred when the victim went upstairs to meet a friend, where the accused has an apartment. A quarrel was said to have ensued when the suspect accused the victim of pouring water in her bathroom and asked her to wash it. The victim, it was learnt, resisted the order and the woman brought out a pair of scissors from her house and stabbed her in the face.

The parents of the girl reported the assault at the Idimu police station and the evangelist was arrested. The accused was later charged for assault before the Magistrate’s Court at Ejigbo. The offence is punishable under Sections 249, 351, 338 of the Criminal Code, Cap.C.17, Vol. 2, Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2003.

The evangelist pleaded not guilty to the charge and was granted bail in the sum of N20,000, with a surety by the magistrate, Mrs. M. I. Dan-Oni. The matter has been adjourned till 11 February, for hearing.

Outside the court, the accused told P.M.News that she was tempted to attack the girl, adding that she had been pleading with the girl’s parents to settle the matter peacefully but they refused. She was later taken into prison custody because she could not fulfill the bail conditions.
