Court remands Woman for allegedly using razor blade on accuser

A Magistrate court seating in Ado Ekiti has ordered that a woman Idowu Akomolafe, be remanded in a Correctional center for alleged attempted murder.

The Magistrate, Mrs. Kehinde Awosika, who did not take the plea of Akomolafe, ordered the Police to return the case file to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Awosika adjourned the case to January 16, for mention.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Samson Osubu, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on November 2, in Ado-Ekiti.

He alleged that the defendant attempted to kill a 42-year-old woman, Denike Olugboye.

Osubu said the defendant used a razor blade and slashed Olugboye on her body, when she publicly accused her of having an extra-martial affair with her husband.

He said the victim is on admission in the hospital.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Section 320 of the Criminal Code, Law of Ekiti State, 2012.
