Newlywed cuts off husband’s manhood in Kaduna

A newlywed woman, Habiba Ibrahim, was said to have allegedly cut off the manhood of her 40-year-old husband, Salisu Idris.

No reason was given for her action, our correspondent gathered.

However, she was reportedly arrested by the police in the Zaria area of Kaduna State.

The sad incident happened on May 26  after the husband returned from the mosque where he observed the early morning Muslim prayers.

Narrating his ordeal, Idris, who’s a commercial motorcycle rider, explained that as he was lying on his bed, his wife suddenly pounced on him with a sharp knife and almost cut off his manhood.

He, however, said that for the timely intervention of his neighbour, Habiba, who he married four years ago, would have succeeded in cutting off his manhood completely.

He said he was shocked by his wife’s action.

This was even as Idris narrated further that there was no misunderstanding before his wife’s action.

It was gathered that Idris was immediately rushed to General Hospital, Makarfi from where he was later referred to the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital, Zaria for medical attention.

“I’m more concerned about my health right now and not thinking of remarrying shortly,” he said.

PUNCH Metro gathered that Idris’ mother, Rabi Salisu, who looks after him on the hospital bed, said he had never complained to her about his wife.

“Her parents are worried and are willing to settle his medical bills,”  she added.

The Kaduna State Command’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mansur Hassan, could not be reached for comments as his telephone indicated that he wasn’t reachable.
