The Police on Wednesday arraigned a 39-year-old woman, Esther Tunde, before a Kaduna Chief Magistrate court for allegedly stabbing her neighbour with a broken bottle.

The police prosecutor, Chidi Leo, told the court that the defendant committed the offenses on November 24 at their residence.

The Magistrate, Ibrahim Emmanuel, granted the defendant bail in the sum N100, 000 with one surety in like sum.
