Lady Attacks Her Ex-Lover With Electrical Iron In Lagos

Debbie Mike, a 23-year-old lady, who allegedly assaulted her ex-boyfriend with electrical iron, was on Monday brought before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court, Lagos.

The jealous lover had assaulted Lanre Adewole, her former lover, with the iron during a fight.

The accused is facing a charge of assault to which she has pleaded not guilty.

Earlier, Sgt. Kehinde Olatunde told the court that the accused committed the offence on May 5 at No, 3a, Sadiku St., Sari-Iganmu in Orile on the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.

“There was a misunderstanding between Debbie and Adewole, her landlord’s son. The accused had complained to Adewole about the leaking roof in her room, but the ex-lover ignored her.

“A fight ensued and Debbie picked an iron and hit Adewole on the forehead and injured him.”

The offence contravened Section 173 of the Criminal law of Lagos State, 2015 which prescribes three years jail term for offenders.

Magistrate Bola Folarin-Williams admitted the accused to a bail of N20,000 with one surety.

The case has been adjourned until May 11 for trial.


  1. But this is a case of two fighting. The lady may have used the iron on him in a self defence

  2. is it the anger of ignoring her report of a leaking roof in her apartment that set her off or the fact that they are no longer together? anyways next time you will know how to manage your anger since you have seen where it took U

  3. See where her jealousy is leading her to. Straight to prison

  4. Love gone wrong, jealousy and bitterness took a better part of her, and the aftermath was hmmmmmmmm
