Neighbour chops off pregnant woman’s hand in Ekiti
A man, who was engaged in a fight with his neighbour in Isaba-Ekiti, allegedly chopped off the left wrist of a pregnant woman, Aisha Adam, with a cutlass.
The left hand of the victim was cut off from the wrist. Her husband, Mohammed Admams, said that there was a quarrel between him and his neighbour, re­sulting in the chopping off of his wife’s hand.
“My wife, the victim, reported to me that our neighbour had fought with her while I was away.
”I challenged him and in the process, both of us started fighting.
“My neighbour rushed inside his room, brought out a cutlass and I also brought out a cutlass in defence.
“When the man came out, my wife tried to in­tervene and he slashed her with the cutlass.
” Her wrist immedi­ately fell-off her hand,” the husband said.
Confirming the in­cident, a police officer, who only identified himself as DSP Peter, told newsmen that a case of a man cutting off a woman’s hand was reported at Ikole Police Division.
He said a suspect had been arrested and the case transferred to the State Criminal Investi­gation Department at the State Police Com­mand Headquarters, Ado-Ekiti.
The victim is still re­ceiving treatment at an hospital in Ikole-Ekiti while the hand that was cut-off had been depos­ited at the mortuary. - The Authority
