Man cuts off wife’s hand over infidelity in Abia

Allegations of infidelity have reportedly prompted a man identified as Jacob Nwachukwu to cut off his wife’s left hand at Abala in Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia State.

According to reports, the victim, Nwadiokeonu Nwachukwu, is currently receiving treatment at a local hospital in Aba.

A female co-tenant of Nwachukwu, who pleaded anonymity, said the husband lost his job and had to relocate to the village alone, after the couple had lived in the city for years.

She said, “The couple had always quarreled any time the man visited his wife in the city, to the extent that all the tenants are aware and intervened in their quarrels.”

It was gathered that the husband visited his wife on the fateful day and during their usual quarrel, brought out a machete, cut off the wife’s hand and left with it to the village while neighbours rushed her to the hospital.

However, the wife’s suspected lover is said to be on the run.

While responding to a text message, the Area Commander, Aba Police Command, Peter Wabara, said the incident had yet to be reported to him.

But a police officer at Ogbor Hill Police Station confirmed the incident and said investigation into the matter had commenced.

The victim’s severed hand had been taken to her husband’s village at Abala for burial.
