Man cuts off girlfriend’s hand for alleged infidelity

A middle-aged man, Chibisi Irem, chopped off his girlfriend’s hand on Tuesday for allegedly dating another man in Ebonyi.

The incident, it became known, occurred in Ishieke parish in the Ebonyi parish of the state, where the lovers run a restaurant.

Research by Punch Metro found that Irem had warned his friend Chinyere on many occasions about her alleged infidelity with another man in the area and asked her to refrain from dating the man, all to no avail.

Miss Chinyere, it was said, continued to deal with the man until trouble broke out between her and Irem on Tuesday morning.

Irem is said to have attacked his girlfriend while they were in her restaurant serving customers.

Ebonyi State Command confirmed the incident.
