A 23-year-old woman, Nfoma Chilaka, who allegedly cut her neighbour’s breast with a razor blade, was on Friday arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrates' Court.

The accused, an hairdresser, who lives at 18, Oridamisi St., Abule-Oki, Iyana Ipaja, a suburb of Lagos, is facing a one-count charge of grievous harm.

The prosecutor, Insp. Rachael Williams, told the court that the offence was committed on Feb. 16 at the residence of the accused.

Williams told the court that a fight ensued between the accused and one of her neighbours, Mrs Cynthia Samuel.

"The accused used a new razor blade and cut her neighbour’s breast which led to bleeding. The complainant sustained a serious injury as a result of the deep cut," she said.

The offence, according to the prosecutor, contravened Section 243 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the accused, however, pleaded not guilty.

The Magistrate, Mrs C.Y. Balogun, admitted the accused to a bail of N50,000 with two sureties in like sum.
She adjourned the case to March 3 for mention.
