Lagos: Lady kills friend with razor over bucket

Olalekan Adetayo

A 22-year-old lady, Ijeoma Obezim, is currently in the custody of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly killing her friend during a fight over a bucket.


The suspect reportedly used a razor blade to inflict grievous injuries on the face of her friend, Ada Okeke, in their residence on Saturday.

The 25-year-old Okeke was later confirmed dead at the nearby Tolu Medical Centre where she was rushed to for treatment.

The suspect, the victim and two other ladies, Chineye and Chika, were said to be occupying the same room in a house located on Ayorinde Street, Tolu, a suburb of Lagos.

When paraded before journalists in Lagos on Monday, Obezim said that trouble started when she needed a bucket Okeke had earlier used to wash some clothes.

She said she was about using the bucket to take her bath when the deceased challenged her and they started exchanging words.

The argument, according to her, later led to a fight which was settled by their neighbours.

She accused Okeke of biting her during the fight.

She confessed that she took a razor blade and inflicted the injuries on the deceased.

"I never knew it would turn out this way. I am not happy that she died. It was just a minor disagreement," the suspect said.

The command's spokesman, Mr. Frank Mba, said that policemen attached to Tolu Division were currently investigating the case.

Mba, a superintendent of police, however, said that the case would soon be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti Street, Yaba, for further investigation.

We need a little patience in this world.

i dont think she intended this outcome......it is so unfortunate to see the devil bring the future of two young people to an abrupt end on one hand, and uncertain future for the other. I dare to say young people face unimaginable challenges in a corrupt country like nigeria.....while this might not be an excuse for causing pains to others, it is important for we to wonder what factors could have led to this especially when you have four female adults competing for space in a one-bedroom space. Also we need to use this as a lesson to rein in our tempers. May God grant the deceased's family fortitude in their grief and the suspect forgiveness.

Its frustration and doesn't know how to manage it led to all this condemnation for her action what a pity. I don't believe she intend to kill, but the turn of not properly rationalize her act got her into this hot mess. God help her out of this mess with her as an example to other as to what an anger can get one into without a good thought of ones action.
