An Abuja lawyer has been arrested for biting off the finnger of his lover during a fight in Byazhin Across, Kubwa, Abuja.
The suspect, simply identified as Emmanuel, was said to have assaulted the woman and cut off her right index finger in her apartment in Federal Housing Estate, Kubwa, when she discovered his planned wedding with another woman.
The victim was said to have been courting the suspect for more than four years and only got to know, through Facebook, that she was dumped for another woman on his wedding’s eve.
The source said the traditional marriage ceremony had already been conducted before the ex-lover got the wind of the development via the photographs posted on the Facebook page of the bride.
The source said trouble began when the woman became suspicious of the suspect’s action, having taken her to a hotel booked for his family members who were already on their way to attend the wedding ceremony.
“When she enquired to know what the hotel rooms were meant for, he simply replied that they were reserved for his friends who asked him to get some rooms for them,” the source added.
“But the girl didn’t leave the matter like that. She challenged the man and, expectedly, their shouting match developed into a fight. It was during the physical confrontation that the lawyer chopped off the woman’s finger with his teeth and tore her clothes.” City News learnt that the victim had already petitioned the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA) on the matter, attaching the picture of the chopped off finger.
When contacted, the Kubwa Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Chief Superintendent Nuruddeen Sabo, said the suspect would be charged to court for causing grievous hurt.
