A female lawyer was arrested on charges of criminal mischief after allegedly breaking her neighbor’s chicken eggs, police in Nigeria said.

The Abuja Police Department said that 38-year-old Hajiya Hamamatu Manu was arrested on Friday, after being accused of killing her neighbor’s chicken and breaking 19 eggs.

Manu of Apo, was charged with one count of criminal mischief.

According to the police investigation, Terhemen Kolum of Apo, filed a complaint against the attorney at her local police station.

Kolum also said that the attorney also destroyed the brick house in which she kept chickens and their eggs. The suspect caused damage in excess of N25,000 ($150).

Manu told investigators that she killed the chicken and broke the eggs because the owner of the property told her to do so.

Manu pleaded not to the charge, and she was released on her own recognizance.
