Two housewives fight violently harming themselves over lover

 Muyibat and Biliki are both married housewives . They both had the same lover and started fighting in the process suffered severed burns.

PUNCH Metro learnt that both women poured hot water on each other and made sure they emptied the kettle during the fight at the residence in Yaba.

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 while Muyibat lives with her husband and three children in the house. 

Punch correspondent was told that 32-year-old Biliki accused Muyibat, 29, of marrying her former boyfriend. Things got out of hand after a disagreement on Saturday hence the fight.

 They have both been admitted into hospital. While the case has been reported to the police. One of the women petitioned the Lagos State officer of the public defender where the matter was mediated.

According to Punch Muyibat said  that their problem started after Biliki accused her of marrying her (Biliki’s) boyfriend.

She said, “Biliki told neighbours that she once dated my husband and that she aborted for him during their relationship.“She calls me Iyawo Sara
(free wife). 

 I have never known peace in that house. She fights me over every minor issue.
“On Saturday, I went to the market with my husband and when we got home, my child started crying.
“Biliki’s younger brother, Ahmed, came out and shouted at him and I cautioned him.

“His sister then picked up a quarrel with me and started raining curses on me. I did not talk because I was observing a fast. While she was abusing me, I sneezed and said, ‘Ausubillahi minashaitani rojeem’ (God, deliver me from the devil).”

Muyibat said Biliki, who is also a Muslim, thought she was referring to her and queried her for calling her a devil.
She alleged that Biliki attacked her in the process.
“I removed the water I was boiling for my vegetables and put it on the table. She (Biliki) held my head from behind and poured the hot water on me.

“Her younger brother slammed a plastic paint on my head, while she drew my hair. Both of them assaulted me,” Muyibat added.

The Kwara State indigene said she was rushed to a private hospital where she was rejected, adding that she later went to the Sabo Police Station to report the case.

Muyibat, who claimed to have passed out on the way to the general hospital, said Biliki had earlier in May threatened to pour acid on her.

However, Biliki, who suffered burns on her breasts, chest and hand, denied the allegations, saying her neighbour was the first to attack her.
She denied ever dating Muyibat’s husband, saying Muyibat was fond of making trouble with her and efforts to reconcile them had always been rebuffed by her.

The Director of the Lagos State Office of the Public Defender, Mrs. Olubukola Salami, described the incident as horrific.

She said, “This horrific incident was an avoidable case.
“Domestic violence has repercussions and it’s totally unacceptable anywhere. The Lagos State Government will deal harshly with those who disturb public peace.”
