The incident was first shared on Twitter by a medical doctor, Jeremiah Jackson, who revealed that the heavily pregnant woman used a kitchen knife to amputate her husband’s penis after a little quarrel.
Jackson stated that the victim will never be able to have sex again and will not be able to urinate properly, as the detached part of the phallus was dead by the time he arrived at the hospital.
Further details have now revealed that the incident occurred in the early hours of Wednesday, July 1, in Tella, a village in Gassol local government area of Taraba state.
The woman is a 32-year-old housewife named Halima Umar and her husband who is the victim is Aliyu Umar.
According to the younger brother of the victim, Usman Umar, his elder brother was sleeping in the same room with his first wife, Halima, when she woke up about 2 am and cut off his penis.
Usman alleged that the wife drugged Aliyu before they went to bed, which made her able to sever his penis without resistance.
Giving a reason for the horrendous act, he stated that Halima is the first wife of his brother and they had been having serious marital issues since he took a second wife about three years ago.
Halima had continued to engage my brother and his new wife in fights since their marriage about three years ago.
The victim’s brother revealed that the victim was rushed from Tella, about 105 kilometers from the headquarters, to the Federal Medical Centre, Jalingo for medical attention.
He was then referred from FMC Jalingo to the Federal Medical Centre, Gombe, a neighbouring state.
Halima was allegedly immediately arrested by the police in Tella village and transferred to the police divisional headquarters in Mutum-Biyu in Gassol local government.
She has a baby boy and is currently expecting another child.
