A 37-year-old woman, Mrs. Josephine, has been arrested for allegedly dousing her neighbour, Mrs. Blessing Christopher, 33, with hot water for allegedly greeting her husband.

Blessing, a worker with Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), incurred the wrath of Josephine on Tuesday night at Agbotikuyo, Agege area of Lagos. Blessing explained that on Tuesday night, as she was preparing dinner for her family in the kitchen, her neighbour’s husband came into the place and greeted her. Immediately she replied, the man’s enraged wife jumped out.

Blessing said: “I responded to his greeting by saying, ‘welcome sir.’ The wife, who heard us, came out from their apartment and warned me never to greet her husband. She said that if I tried it again, she would deal with me. I asked her when it has become a crime to respond to greetings. She said that I should wait for her. I continued with my cooking. A few minutes later, I saw her with a pot; she was hurriedly moving towards me. Her husband tried to block me from her, but the woman went behind me and poured hot water on my back.”
