A 45-year-old woman, Elizabeth Elijah, popularly known as Bose and believed to be a sympathiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has been arrested by the Korle Bu Police for allegedly pouring hot soup on a neighbour following a confrontation that ensued between them.
The victim, Hawa Mumuni, 31, a supporter of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has had her face and arm harmed, which requires that she undergoes plastic surgery to correct the deformity.
The incident is said to have taken place following an argument between the two in connection with the investiture of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as President of the country.
According to Hawa, at about 4 p.m. last Saturday, January 7, 2017, she went to the house in which the accused was staying at Abossey Okai Zongo Junction in Accra to fetch water.
She stated that Bose began hurling insults at her, to which she replied, and that resulted in a scuffle.
Hawa said the confrontation turned nasty and in the melee Bose disentangled herself from her (Hawa’s) grip, lifted the soup that was on fire and poured the contents on her.
Quite surprisingly, she said, even though there were other people in the house, no one intervened in the struggle.
