A lady, Chikaodi Umeh, is said to be on the run, after she allegedly attacked and left an indelible mark on her friend’s face, following a dispute over N950 in Umuahia, Abia State.
A dispute was said to have occurred over money given to them to buy alcohol.
Another lady, identified as Eva, who narrated the incident, said: “On Friday, 28th November 2019, Chikaodi Umeh — who is a friend to Onyinyechi Abaruo — went out drinking with their mutual friend, Nene.
“Onyinyechi later went to join them, but as she was arriving, Chikaodi’s male friend who was hosting them, was about to leave and Chikaodi pleaded with him to give her some money to enable her buy more drinks for Onyinyechi who just came in. The guy then gave Chikaodi the sum of N2000 and left.
“And Chikaodi went ahead to buy 5 bottles of beer, which amounted to N1,050 and was left with N950 which she decided to keep. But that got Onyinyichi angry and questioned why Chikaodi would keep the money to herself. This resulted in a dispute and later a fight between them.
“After the fight, Chikaodi left but forgot her body lotion on the table. She later called their other friend, Nene — who invited Onyinyechi in the first place — to please help her bring the lotion to Kano Street, Uzoakoli road, Umuahia.
“However, while waiting for Nene to arrive, Onyinyechi stormed the place in a tricycle and told her: “this your fine face, I will disfigure it for you.” Then she brought out a sharp object and attacked her, leaving her in a pool of blood before fleeing in the tricycle.”
The state police command have not reacted to the incident.
