It has been reported that a man in Abia State identified as Jacob Nwachukwu cut off his wife’s left hand over an allegation of infidelity.
The victim, Nwadiokeonu Nwachukwu, is said to be currently receiving treatment at a local hospital in Aba, while her severed hand had been taken to her husband’s village at Abala for burial.
According to a female co-tenant of Mrs. Nwachukwu, the couple had lived in the city for years before the husband relocated to the village because he lost his job. The wife remained in the city to handle her trading business.
She told Southern City News, “the couple had always quarrelled any time the man visited his wife in the city, to the extent that all the tenants are aware and intervened in their quarrels.”
The husband is said to have cut off the wife’s hand during a quarrel and left with it to the village.
His intention was said to kill his wife but her hand got cut while trying to defend herself with it.
The woman’s suspected lover is said to be on the run.
The case is said to have been reported to police.
The police are yet to make any arrest.
#EndSARS: Enugu Govt Adjusts 24-Hour Curfew

This was announced in a statement issued by the State Commissioner for Information, Mr Chidi Aroh, on Saturday.

Fani-Kayode Condemns Video Asking Igbo Indigenes To Leave Yorubaland
Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned the threat of violence on Igbo indigenes in Yorubaland.
In a video circulating on social media, Grandson Adeyinka, a UK-based Nigerian, called on Igbo indigenes to leave south-west states.
In the video, Adeyinka issued a 48-hour ultimatum to the Igbo, warning that those who refuse to leave will be dealt with.
Reacting to the video, the former Minister distanced the Yoruba people from the statement, urging the Igbo people in Lagos to stand firm and stand their ground.
..The sons of Oduduwa will stand by you. The SW is safe for all non-indegenees. We are a peaceful, loving, liberal, kind & accommodating people. We are not animals & thugs. We do not give our compatriots ultimatums, throw them out of our territory or threaten them with violence.
