A newly married woman escaped death by the whiskers after her landlord's son stabbed her with broken bottles.
The sins of the woman identified as Taiwo Kehinde, according to Vanguard, was that her husband allowed a man the landlord saw as an enemy, into her apartment at Ishaga Street in the area.
It was learned that the landlord had banned the man from entering his house but Taiwo's husband, Mayowa Kehinde, defied the orders and allowed the man into her apartment, leading to an altercation that led to her being battered.
Narrating her experience on her hospital bed after coming out of coma, Kehinde, said:
“My landlord’s son, Jimoh Yusuf, attacked me right inside my apartment with broken bottles. My sin was that my husband allowed one of his friends into our apartment.
I was returning from my shop last Friday when I met this family friend, Monday Michael, who lives opposite us.
He told me to leave the house that my husband and our landlord’s son were quarreling. I decided to go inside and change into something else.
The family friend left for his house, while I entered our apartment. I was trying to change my wears when Jimoh barged inside and started shouting.
He said ‘I have told you and your husband that I don’t want to see that man (family friend) anywhere close to this house. But you wouldn’t obey. I am going to kill you before your husband comes back’.
Before I knew it, he broke the bottles in his hands and started stabbing me all over my body, until I passed out. This is not the first time he has beaten me.
I am not his wife, neither am I related to him.”
The assailant, it was gathered, was later arrested and charged to court and has been remanded in prison after he could not meet his bail conditions.
Residents of the area also confirmed that Jimoh was in the habit of attacking his father's tenants with all sorts of weapons.
