The attacker, Mrs Blessing Odion Amayanevbo reportedly carried bottles with her to the shop of her relative, Mrs Joy Osagie Amayanevbo, after she heard that the latter mocked her son for not gaining admission into the university.
She stabbed Mrs Joy on the forehead with a broken bottle, leaving her with a deep cut that bled profusely.
According to Mrs Joy’s daughter, Mrs Blessing would have succeeded in killing her mother if not for the policemen who were around that quickly caught her as she was about to escape.
Mrs Joy was taken to the hospital while the police arrested the culprit, Mrs Blessing and took her to the police station at Estate gate, Airport Road in Benin City, Edo State.
Further reports revealed that Mrs Blessing who was later released on bail threatened that she will do more harm to Mrs Joy.
