Abuja housewife pours hot beans on neighbour

A housewife, Nafisa Abbas, on Friday, appeared before a Grade 1 Area Court, Karu, Abuja, for allegedly causing grievous harm to her neighbour.

The News Agency of Nigeria reported that the police charged Abbas, 20, with voluntarily causing grievous harm and inciting disturbance.

The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor, Mr Olanrewaju Osho, told the court that sometime in December 2022, the defendant poured hot water and beans on the victim, who was her neighbour, thereby causing her injuries.

The incident happened behind ECWA Church, Karu, Abuja.

The prosecutor said the defendant had been brought to the Karu Police Station on several occasions for inciting public disturbance and had been warned by the police to desist from the act.

The judge, Malam Umar Mayana, admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum.

He held that the sureties must provide means of identification and verifiable addresses.

The case was adjourned until March 28 for substantive hearing.
