The police in Lagos on Thursday arraigned a 23-year -old man, who allegedly stabbed his girlfriend for desiring to quit their relationship. Olaide Salami appeared before an Apapa Magistrates’ Court over assault, stealing and conspiracy. Salami, who resides at Ajegunle, Apapa, Lagos, allegedly stabbed Miss Monisola Adedoyin on the face with a broken bottle. The Prosecutor, Cpl.
