Husband accuses wife of Infidelity, Cuts off her Hand in Aba



An Aba-based couple are at the centre of a gruesome domestic violence case. Mr Nwachukwu allegedly cut off his wife’s hand during an argument over infidelity on Monday.

An anonymous neighbour told Vanguard Newspaper,

“The couple had always quarrelled any time the man visited his wife in the city, to the extent that all the tenants are aware and intervened in their quarrels.”

According to reports, the accused and his wife had lived together in Aba until he lost his job and was forced to relocate to the village.

Since then, during his visits to the city, the couple spent most of their time arguing.

On Monday, he brought out a machete and severed his wife’s hand. It is being speculated that his intention was to kill her but he missed his target and cut off her hand as she tried to defend herself. He had accused her of infidelity.

She was rushed to the hospital by concerned neighbours.

Area Commander, Aba Police Command, Peter Wabara, in a response to a text message to Vanguard Newspaper, said the incident was yet to be reported to him. However, a police officer at Ogbor Hill Police Station, confirmed the incident and said investigation into the matter had commenced.

The victim is currently admitted in a hospital in Aba. There are conflicting reports on the status of her severed hand. It is being reported that her severed hand has been taken to her husband’s village for burial.

    He didn’t manage his “5 minutes madness” well. I hope he pays hugely for what he has done.

    Tufiakwa, Nigeria women and adultery. Nigeria married women are more promiscous than the married men.

      Mr. Adeyemo, I have always dismissed your comments on BN as they hold no more substance than the rantings of an idle man. Today you have gone too far.
      You have tried this woman and judged her guilty of promiscuity, based on what evidence? I hope you do not have sons or daughters because having you as a father is a huge disservice.

      BN, you saw this comment and allowed it to be posted? A woman’s hand was cut off but of course, it’s her fault for her wretched husband’s wickedness ????????????????

      Paul, you are a total idiot.

    So sad.Violence is never acceptable,no matter but most women abused men verbally to the point where it hurt men emotionally to lose their temper and strike.Men are not only sole perpetrators of domestic abuse,yet the mainstream image of domestic abuse is portrayed of a male over a female.All you angry feminists have demonstrably ignored male victims of abuse from women.Male victims exist and should be helped.Women are more vicious and can also inflict serious damage on a man,because are more violent likely to use weapons and devious violence.Most women aim for vulnerable spots than men(balls,eyes e.t.c).let’s consider male victims as well.

      It beats me how you people blame feminists for not fighting for men. No one is stopping you from starting a male dominated movement. Call it manisism or whatnot. Just leave feminists out of this. There are human rights activists who fight for both genders in case you don’t know. That I decide to bring awareness to breast cancer doesn’t mean I don’t acknowledge that cervical cancer exists. The world is full of battles, let people choose the one they wish to fight. What is so wrong with that?
      As for your “women are more vicious”…… statistics or keep quiet.
      For the man that decided to severe his wife’s hand, he has no place in the society. Put him where he belongs. Ode buruku.

      @cindy how that pertains to my comment.,Yes according to criminal statistic” women are more vicious” and also has been proven that woman antognized the situation.,We live in a gynocentric society where men are dehumanised for the benefit of women and it is women can act with impunity.Yes i blamed feminists because angry feminists always used to say that putting an end to patriarchy would make society more far and equitable but really what has happened is that women better at being one sided,self centered,hypocritical jerks than men.We as real men are voicing an opposing view point.Why can’t you accept and respect that?

    Nigerian police and their ‘investigations’, i caught a thief in my house trying to steal car battery at midnight , beat him up with the help of the neighborhood and handed him to the police. they detained me for beating the thief i caught in my house with tools and said they will investigate if he’s actually a thief! or we just jumped to conclusions and took laws into our hands.. i ended up paying 10k for my bail while they released the thief later in the day because he had nothing to give them, tufia! I’m weak

    This is all shades of wrong. guessing the hand can’t be put back since it wasn’t put on ice….it should be given to the cannibal of a man to eat since he decided to do something this demonic. …he will later say its the devil’s fault….cause he was caught. ..useless excuse for a man….couldn’t he just have divorced her instead

    Oh boy. Poor woman. The man lost his job and took it out on his wife.

    Such a tragic tale. A woman just can’t win, if she chooses to love a man, problem, if she chooses to steer clear of them, problem just the same. Maybe the only place we can find peace is in a convent.
