A 39-year-old man, Anthony Edijala, has been accused of attacking his ex-wife and mother of two, Augustina Jowho Broma, with an axe over an argent in Ughelli, Delta State.
It was gathered that Anthony accused the victim of using diabolical means to shrink his manhood after their separation.
This led them into an argument which made the man attack and strike the head of the victim with an axe.
Confirming the incident to Vanguard, a security source said the suspect had confessed to the crime and admitted that him (suspect) and the lady in question had a disagreement after they both separated with the suspect acknowledging that his action was a mistake. “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,” a source said.
The victim was rushed to the General Hospital, Ughelli where she is receiving medical attention having received several surgical operations amidst fears of partial paralysis.
