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.
