A 38-year-old mother and her 12-year-old son were attacked at their Ufuoma community residence, Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State in Nigeria over the droppings of a chicken to be used for the Easter celebration.
Mrs. Onobrakpeya and her son, Emuobonuvie Onobrakpeya, were brought to the Ughelli Central Hospital. The victims claimed they were attacked by their landlady, identified as Mrs. Atalekor, with a razor blade.
The landlady’s husband, Prosper Atalekor, denied the allegation, saying that it was his 10-year-old son that slashed the face and neck of the victims in defense of his mother, who was being beaten by the Onobrakpeyas.
The trouble started when a chicken bought by Efe Onobrakpeya, husband and father of the victims, soiled the veranda of the Atalekors. It led to a verbal and confrontation and free-for-all by the women.
