A 41-year-old identified as Ogbonna Nwankwo has been apprehended by men of the Anambra state police command for allegedly attempting to kill a woman named Bella Joseph, and cutting off her breast on Wednesday, September 2.

While divulging this to newsmen, the spokesperson of the state police command, Haruna Mohammed revealed that Ogbonna took Bella to Dollar Inn motel in Ihite in Orumba South local government area to lodge. He said while they lodged in their hotel room, the suspect allegedly used a knife to stab Bella and was attempting to cut off her breast when her cry for help was heard by the motel manager who came to her rescue.

”Suspect allegedly  attempted to murder the lady inside the motel room by stabbing victim with a knife on her stomach and tried to cut off her right side breast using the same knife probably for ritual purpose thinking she was dead before he was apprehended following her shout for help which attracted  attention of the motel manager” 

However, Haruna added that police operatives attached to the Umunze division were invited and they rushed the victim to a specialist hospital in Nnewi where she is being treated. He also stresses that the suspect who was seriously manhandled by a mob and beaten to stupor was equally arrested by the police and taken to the hospital for treatment under police guard.

Furthermore, a blood-stained knife was recovered at the scene as an exhibit. Haruna said the case has been transferred to the State Criminal investigation department for discreet investigation in order to unravel the actual circumstances surrounding the incident.
