Police Arrest 20-Year-Old Woman For Severing Husband’s Genital In Taraba
The police have arrested and paraded one Halima Ali, for severing her husband’s genital in the Tella community of Gassol local government area, Taraba State.
The 20-year-old suspect is said to have drugged her husband, Mr Ali Umar, and used a sharp knife to sever his genital organ while asleep.
Parading Halima alongside other suspects in Jalingo the state capital, the police public relations officer David Misal said the couple had on the previous day engaged in a quarrel and that led to the nefarious act.
The suspect, according to Misal, will be charged to court for the offence of attempted culpable homicide.
The victim, Umar is said to be recuperating at an undisclosed hospital in Gombe state.
In an interview with Halima, she disclosed that jealousy led her to the atrocious act.
She noted that she had been married to her husband for 10 years with whom she has four children, and could not stand to see him marry another woman.
Halima blamed the devil for the act, even as she advised her fellow women to control their temper whenever such jealousy creeps in.
