The Lagos state police command have arrested a Lagos resident Mrs. Josephine after she poured hot water on her neighbor Mrs. Blessing Christopher for greeting her husband.
The effect of the hot water has damaged Mrs. Blessing’s skin beyond recognition.
According to the victim, she got a warning from Mrs. Josephine after she replied her husband’s greetings as she was cooking in their public kitchen asking her to stop talking to her husband.
”I responded to his greeting by saying, ‘welcome sir.’ The wife, who heard us, came out from their apartment and warned me never to greet her husband. She said that if I tried it again, she would deal with me.
I asked her when it has become a crime to respond to greetings. She said that I should wait for her. I continued with my cooking. A few minutes later, I saw her with a pot; she was hurriedly moving towards me. Her husband tried to block me from her, but the woman went behind me and poured hot water on my back.”
