Confusion As Husband Comes Home Masked, Cuts Off His Wife's Two Fingers And Ran Away With Them

There was confusion in the Oba Ile area of Akure North Local Government Area, Ondo State when a husband attacked his wife and cut off her two fingers and ran away with them.

However, luck ran out on the man identified as Idowu Benson as operatives of the Ondo State Police Command on Sunday arrested him.

The 42-year-old suspect was said to have gone into his house around 7pm of the day of the attack wearing a mask, armed with a machete and pretended to be a hired assassin.

He was said to have told his wife Kemi Idowu that he was sent to kill her and in an attempt to cut her head, he cut the two fingers.

A source privy to the matter said the suspect left the house with the two fingers, while the woman was rolling on the floor in pain.

The source added that it was Kemi’s  cry that attracted neighbours who invited the police. The policemen were said to have seen Idowu’s mobile phone on the ground.

The police reportedly invited the suspect, who allegedly confessed to the crime during interrogation.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph, said Idowu blamed the act on the devil.

Meanwhile, he had yet to disclose where he kept the two fingers or what he did with them.
