16-year-old baths friend with hot water over N200 gift



A 16-year-old  girl, (name withheld) appeared before an Ikeja Magistrate Court today, after she allegedly poured hot water on her friend over a N200 gift. 

According to NAN, the girl, a student, resident at 42, Arefun St., Ayobo, Lagos, with her brother is being tried for assault and causing grievous harm.
 
The Prosecutor, Insp. Clifford Ogu, told the court that the offences were committed on Jan. 15, at the accused residence.
 
Ogu said that the accused and her friend, Busayo Olorundahunsi, 17, were fighting over how the accused spent N200 that was meant to be shared between them.
 
The complainant accommodated the accused in her brother’s house since 2017.
The complainant’s brother gave her N500 to prepare beans, but the accused collected N200 from her friend claiming she did not want to eat the beans,” he said.
 
Ogu explained that the complainant, thereafter, told the accused that they would both share the N200 and then use N300 to prepare the beans.
 
The accused spent the money alone and a fight ensued between them.
The accused, who was at that time boiling hot water to cook noodles, poured it on her friend’s body,” he said.
 
Ogu added that the complainant face, neck and chest got burnt and she was rushed to a hospital.

The case was adjourned until Feb. 26, for mention.
