A 42-year-old housewife, Lola Abdulsalam, has been remanded in a correctional facility in Ilorin, Nigeria after being accused of pouring hot water on her co-wife, Bilikisu Abdulsalam.
The police have filed a two-count first information report against Lola for causing grievous hurt and defamation of character.
The altercation between the two women reportedly started when Bilikisu was removing a dead rat from the backdoor.
Lola reportedly insulted and beat Bilikisu with a broom, calling her a witch, before going into the kitchen to get boiled water and pouring it on her body.
Bilikisu suffered severe burns to her face, breasts, and other parts of her body and was later admitted to the Cottage Hospital in Ilorin for treatment.
The prosecutor, ASP Zacheus Folorunsho, requested that Lola be remanded in custody while the police complete their investigation.
Magistrate Ibrahim Dasuki granted the request and ordered that Lola be held at the Oke-Kura correctional facility in Ilorin.
The case has been adjourned until March 6, 2023.
