A 30-year-old woman, Adenike, was on Tuesday arraigned in an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly beating her mother-in-law into a coma.

Adenike, whose address was not provided, is charged with attempted murder.

The prosecutor, Insp. Bankole Olasunkanmi told the court that the defendant committed the offence on September 9 at Ado-Ekiti.
