A man called Jacob Nwachukwu has reportedly cut off his wife’s left hand because he believed she was promiscuous.
The report says Mrs. Nwadiokeonu Nwachukwu is now at a hospital in Aba while her severed hand has been taken to her husband’s village at Abala for burial.
The incident happened after Mr. Nwachukwu, having lost his job, relocated to the village. He had left his wife in the town for many years and was now visiting.
Upon arrival, he heard regular rumours about her infidelity and they had had fights about these frequently.
Then in the latest incident, he brought out a machete to attack the wife and it cut off her hand. Apparently the woman raised the arm to defend herself.
The man is said to be on the run while the woman is currently in hospital.
