A woman who is in her early 30s is currently struggling for her life after the father of her two children allegedly struck her with an axe following a disagreement between them.
It was gathered that the suspect struck her with the axe after he suspected that she used mysterious powers to shrink his manhood.
The victim identified as Augustina Jowho Broma, was struck on the head and spin by her estranged boyfriend, Anthony Edijala, aged 39 who has since been arrested by the police.
The victim’s brother, Felix Broma, told newsmen that his sister was rushed to the General Hospital, Ughelli where she is receiving medical attention having received several surgical operations amidst fears of partial paralysis.
Witnesses revealed that it took the timely intervention of some policemen who rushed to the scene of the incident to rescue the suspect from an angry mob that had beat him to a pulp.
A security source who spoke to Vanguard on the condition of anonymity further disclosed that the suspect had confessed to the crime, saying that he and his enstranged lover had an argument following their separation.
The source said:
“He had accused the victim of being the brain behind the shrinking of his manhood which he claimed used to be bigger than its present size, an incident that also contributed to the crack in their relationship.
“On the day of the incident, he said he had gone to the shop of the victim in an attempt to see his kids when they had an argument with the suspect grabbing an axe while trying to defend herself which he grabbed and used to strike her.”
