Landlord’s daughter ‘stabs’ tenant with broken bottle

A 30-year-old woman, Kudirat Balogun, who allegedly stabbed her father’s tenant with a broken bottle, on Tuesday appeared in a Tinubu Magistrates’ Court, Lagos Island.

Police charged Balogun with conspiracy and attempted murder.

She pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Prosecutor ASP Ben Ekundayo said the defendant stabbed Mr Chukwuma Abuza in the stomach during an argument on February 23, after conspiring with her brother, now at large.

Ekundayo said the defendant also used an iron rod to inflict life-threatening injuries on the complainant.

Magistrate A.M. Olumide-Fusika admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N200,000, and ordered that the case file be duplicated and sent to the state Director of Public Prosecutions for advice.

She adjourned the case until March 30, for further hearing.
