Taiwo and her injury
 The incident happened at I6 Oduduwa Crescent in Shasha, outskirts of Lagos where they reside.
According to Taiwo, the trouble started after Olowolagba held a party and littered the whole compound; she was asked to clean up the compound but refused. Taiwo narrated that she had to handle the cleaning.
She added that when Olowolagba’s husband saw her while sweeping, he informed Olowolagba who came out from their apartment and asked Taiwo who asked her to sweep the compound.
Along the line, they exchanged hot words which resulted in a fight and in the process, Olowolagba grabbed Taiwo’s right breast, bit off her nipple and swallowed it. Taiwo said while she was bleeding, Olowolagba was busy biting other parts of her body before neighbours intervened.
Taiwo was rushed to Igando General Hospital where she is being treated. The matter was reported to the Police at Shasha division and Olowolagba was arrested and charged to court for the assault but pleaded not guilty.
The presiding Magistrate, Mrs J.O.E Adeyemi, granted her bail in the sum of N50, 000 with two sureties in like sum. She was remanded in prison custody at Kirikiri pending when she will perfect her bail. The case was adjourned till 21 September 2015.
