Twenty nine year old Muyibat and Biliki, aged 32 have suffered severe burns after pouring hot water on each other in a fight over a man.
Two women emptied a kettle of hot water on each other during the brawl at Yaba, Lagos State, Punch says.
Biliki, who was living with her husband in the Surulere area of the state, relocated to her parents’ house in Abule Oja, Yaba, in 2015, after separating from the husband. Muyibat lives with her husband and three children in the house.
Reports say Biliki accused Muyibat, of marrying her former boyfriend, which caused bad blood between them. Things degenerated in an ugly manner on Saturday after a disagreement which saw them pour hot water on each other.
Both women have been admitted to a general hospital in the state.
