A female staff of a bank in Lagos has been accused of assaulting her husband after a domestic argument.
Bimbo Ajetumobi Daniju is said to have attacked her husband and cut his penis with a knife.
Mrs. Daniju is said to have perpetrated the act due to her husband’s inability to provide money for household expenses.
Stella Dimokokorkus reports:
It was said that Bimbo picked a quarrel with her husband on Sunday, December 16 on account of his inability to provide for the needs of the family.
While he was eating, his wife, Bimbo came and started shouting at him calling him very unprintable names, she poured his plate of food on his head and proceeded to beat him with a bucket she found in the compound.
Olalekan Daniju was reported to have run to his sister’s shop to seek refuge from his angry wife but Bimbo followed him there with broken bottle threatening to stab him.This resulted into a quarrel after which they went to bed. At about 2am, there was shouting in the couple’s apartment and reports have it that she woke her husband up, tore his pants and held his penis.
She proceeded to cut his penis with the knife she was holding and ran away leaving him with parting shot, “that is where you will die” with Lekan shouting and writhing in anguish.
Lekan was taken to a private clinic where he was treated. Bimbo was arrested and taken to the police station.
In her statement at the police station, Bimbo denied using knife on her husband but her fingernails.
She has since been released as Lekan said he is not interested in pressing charges.
