Crime

A mum-of-two, Augustina Jowho Broma, has been hospitalised after the father of her children, allegedly struck her head and spin with an axe following an argument in Ughelli, Delta State.

It was gathered that the suspect, Anthony Edijala, 39, had accused the victim of using mysterious powers to shrink his manhood after they got separated.

Vanguard reports 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. 

Confirming the incident, a security source said the suspect had confessed to the crime and admitted that he 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 the victim was trying to defend herself and striking her,” a source said.
