Lagos police said that they have arrested 24-year-old Angela Job, after being accused of injuring Uche Anyanwu, because she wanted her money back.

In court, Job pleaded not guilty to one count of assault occasioning grievous harm. She was booked into jail, and her bail was set at N200,000 ($634).

According to the criminal complaint, the incident unfolded on Friday around 6:30 p.m. at Papa Bus Stop. Anyanwu approached Job, and asked her to repay her the sum of money she loaned her several months earlier.

Police did not disclose the amount of the loan. Job became angry and started beating Anyanwu. Job then bit off Anyanwu’s eyelid.
