A woman was arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly pouring acid on her neighbor’s face in order to disfigure her, police in Nigeria said.
Lagos state police said that they have arrested 27-year-old Rukayat Adesina, after being accused of pouring acid on Taiwo Olajide during a fight.
According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded in the house that the two women share. Olajide exited the bathroom with only a towel wrapped around her body when Adesina attacked her with the acid.
As a result of the attack, the skin peeled off her body. During questioning, Adesina told police that she attacked Olajide because her husband was having sex with her.
Adesina aimed to disfigure her neighbor so that her husband won’t be interested in her anymore. The victim was taken to General Hospital, where she is said to be in critical condition.
In court, Adesina pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault. Her bail was set at N100,000 ($502).
