A trader identified as Iya Keji, has been declared wanted for allegedly cutting her husband’s 12-year-old cousin, Bose, with a blade on different parts of her body on Tayo Kehinde Street, Egbeda, Lagos State.
The mother of one, who is a trader later escaped. She has been declared wanted by policemen from the Shasha division. However, her mother, aunt and daughter were detained pending the arrest of the trader.
Iya Keji’s husband travelled abroad five years ago, leaving her with their six year old daughter, Keji and Bose. Bose is reported to be the suspect’s husband’s cousin and had been living with them before he travelled out.
It was learnt that around 4am on Tuesday, Iya Keji beat up the victim because she saw N20 which she could not account for in her pocket, before inflicting deep cuts on her face and hands.
