“She peeped through the window and saw a masked person stabbing a lady. She rushed and called her father, who alerted other tenants that forced the door open, only to discover that the masked person was Anita Ofili.

“The whole room was filled with blood. We discovered that the victim was still breathing. We had to tie Ofili’s legs and hands to prevent her from escaping.

“Before the arrival of the Police, Ofili did not show any sign of remorse. She said she would explain to the Police what happened.

“She claimed the lady in question was her friend and that her action was in revenge for what her friend did to her.”
