A woman smashed a glass bottle on her roommate’s head because she complained about smoking, police in Nigeria said.
Abuja City Police said that the fight broke out between the two women, who share an apartment, after the pregnant woman did not stop complaining about her roommate’s smoking.
The women were simply identified as Mrs. Victoria and Mommy Sekirat. Their husbands both work at the same government ministry.
Victoria, who is pregnant, began to complain that Sekirat’s smoking makes her feel like vomiting. On Friday, Sekirat felt that Victoria had gone too far with her nagging so she decided to smash a glass bottle on Victoria’s head.
The women then bit each other, leaving them with deep cuts on their arms. Sekirat also shattered Victoria’s TV and other equipment in the living room.
Victoria went to the police and claimed that Sekirat was trying to kill the baby in her womb. As police were ready to file assault charges against Sekirat, the husband of Victoria forced his wife to recant her story.
Police had no choice and dropped the matter due to lack of evidence.
