A teen girl was severely beaten by her best friend because she decided to date her best friend’s boyfriend, police in Nigeria said.

A teen Lola Funmi, has been arrested after she attacked her friend, 15 years old Haliya Odunaya, with a sharp object, cutting her neck.

Odunaya, who is a high school student, is receiving treatment at the Stars Clinic, which is located on Apapa Road in Ebute Matta, after the brutal attack left her fighting for her life. Her attacker, Funmi, had warned her friend to stay away from her man or be prepared to pay the price.

Odunaya denied ever hanging out with her friend’s boyfriend. According to the initial police investigation, Funmi went over to Odunaya’s house and began screaming at the teen.

After a few minutes, Odunaya produced a sharp object and began to stab the victim. Funmi fled from the scene before police arrived.

Odunaya laid on the ground in a pool of blood until she was transported to a local hospital for treatment. Doctors said that she is lucky to be alive.
