A woman has been arrested for stabbing a food seller because she refused to sell food to her on credit in Lagos.
The 47-year-old suspect, named Aminat Ayileri, is a tailor who is struggling to make ends meet. As a result, she frequently bought food on credit from a food seller in Ejigbo, named Abiodun Ishola.

When she went to ask Abiodun to sell food to her again, Abiodun refused and asked her to pay up her debts before she will get food. That did not go down well with Aminat and she attacked Abiodun and stabbed her close to the right eye.
Aminat was charged before the Ejigbo Magistrates Court for assault where she pleaded not guilty before the Court.
Aminat was granted bail in the sum of N50,000 with one surety in like sum. She was remanded in prison custody pending when she will perfect her bail condition.
The matter was adjourned till 9th January, 2018.
