Man machetes lady for refusing to date him
A 25-year old year man, Israel Bassey, from Akwa Ibom State, has been arrested and charged before a Lagos court for allegedly attacking a lady, Azeezat Adigun, and inflicted an injury on her head with a cutlass for refusing to befriend him, Pmexpress reports.
The incident happened at Olabisi Street, Idimu, Lagos where both the victim and the suspect reside. On 11 February, Police source said Bassey reportedly brought out cutlass during a disagreement with Azeezat and inflicted a deep cut on her head.
She fell down and was rushed to a hospital where she was operated on, for several hours. It was gathered that both Bassey had made a move to build a relationship with her.
However, he was rebuffed as Azeezat said she would not want to have anything to do with men living in the same area with her and besides, they were not from the same background.
But on the day the incident happened, it was learnt that the two had a disagreement and Bassey who had nursed anger over the rejection, did not waste time to vent his anger on her. He has since been charged to court with assault
