A 42-year-old envious housewife, Esther (surname withheld), has been arrested by the Delta state Police Command for allegedly cutting off her husband’s genitals.
According to the state’s police public relations officer, DSP Celestina Kalu, who made this known to Leadership, said the incident happened in Ugbolu community close to Asaba, the state capital.
He said the suspect committed the act during a fight that accompanied her husband’s alleged interest in other women.
The suspect, who is a mother of two, laid in wait her husband close to an undisclosed hotel in a suburb area of the state, and patiently hanged around for him and his lover to come out of the hotel room before attacking him.
Kalu further revealed that the suspect appeared from the bush and engaged the man in a physical fight, during which she allegedly used razor to slash his ‘male organ.’ It was gathered that the couple had always fought over the husband’s lifestyle and infidelity, with the suspect threatening to spill his blood if he refuses to change.
The force spokesman, who revealed that the suspect had already confessed to the crime, said she would be charged to court upon conclusion of investigation.
