March 12, 2016 – Injustice: Woman Loses Right Eye To Wicked Mother In Law
Olasunkanmi Lawal, a 52-year-old housewife, has lost the use of one of her eyes after a scuffle with her mother-in-law, Aduke Awakan.
The mother of two was also said to have been attacked by her sisters-in-law, Bose Showole (39) and Oduntan Enitan (24), at their family house on Isale-Agbede Street, on the Lagos Island area of Lagos State.
We learnt that the case was reported at the Adeniji Adele Police Station, leading to the arrest of the suspects.The victim explained that she was attacked because she stopped giving money to the septuagenarian.
In her words:
“My husband and I live in the family house and we have been there since 1989. We have two children. “However, my mother-in-law started keeping malice with me after I stopped giving her money. I lost my jewellery business due to the demolition of my shop in 2014 and because of that; I could no longer support her.
“On Saturday, January 16, around 4pm, I returned from work and I met her at home. When I greeted her, she shunned me. I was surprised because I never had any disagreement with her. “Before I knew it, one of her children, Bose (Showole), punched me in the left eye. I fought back. Her grandchild, Enitan, used stone to hit me in the same eye, while the woman herself hit me with a chair. Blood started coming out from the eye.”
Lagos Island General Hospital doctors told her she had lost the use of her right eye.
