A woman known as Mrs. Josephine is currently in the grips of the Lagos state police after she poured hot water on her neighbour for just greeting her husband.
According to the victim identified as Mrs. Blessing Christopher, she was in her kitchen busily making dinner when her neighbour husband called out to greet her to which she responded only for his jealous wife to barge out and warn her to desist from talking with her husband.
”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.”
