A mother became very angry when she learned that her husband was cheating and she decided to take revenge by hurting his mistress.

28-year-old Tina Promise of Nigeria, was arrested after cutting her husband’s lover with a razor blade.

Promise, who lives on Molade Okoya Thomas Street in Lagos, is a mother of three children and her youngest child is just three weeks old.

Prosecutor Sergeant Francesca Job told the court that the victim, 22-year-old Esther Onogwu, who is a janitor at a popular hotel, was walking home at 9:20 p.m., when she was confronted by the suspect.

Promise approached Onogwu and asked for the key to her house. She refused to hand it over and asked the suspect who she was.

Promise did not respond. Instead, she pulled a razor, and she cut Onogwu on the head and slashed her left breast.

Good Samaritans came to her aid, and stopped the attack. Police were called and Promise was arrested while the victim was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Graphic photos of Onogwu’s injuries were uploaded to the Internet, where they went viral.

Judge F. Botoku granted Promise bail as she is a nursing mother of a newborn baby. She is being held on 200,000 naira ($635) bail.
