A 27-year old lady, Gift Udo, has displayed her combat skills on another lady, Dupe Taro, 37, by slapping her during a public fight and she slumped and died in the process in Lagos State.

  We gathered that the action has landed Gift in big trouble now as she has been arrested and detained for murder, which attracts life imprisonment if she is tried and found guilty before the Court of Law.

  The incident happened at Coconut under bridge in Apapa area of Lagos, where the fight ensured between Gift and the late Dupe.

  News has it that the duo had a disagreement over an undisclosed matter, which led one of them, Gift, as described by the Police, to have used excessive force to slap Dupe and it led to her death.

  Hence, the Presiding Magistrate, O.A. Olagbende, ordered his remand in correctional centre pending when the report of the DPP will be ready.
