Police Inspector Cuts Off Pregnant Wife’s Hand Over N20,000



A yet-to-be-identified Police Inspector has allegedly cut off his wife’s hand over what was described as “a minor disagreement over N20,000,” in the Dong area of Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State.

New Telegraph gathered that the said Inspector left the money at home and by the time he returned, it was no longer where he left it, leading to an argument between him and his wife.

In the heat of the argument, according to sources privy to the development, the Police officer reportedly chopped off his wife’s hand.

Speaking on the development, the State Police Command said he has since been arrested and detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department.

The Police Spokesman, DSP Alfred Alabo told Vanguard on the phone that the Command is aware of the incident saying, “We are aware of the incident, the man is an Inspector. Right now, he is at the State CID and the investigation is ongoing.

“He has a minor misunderstanding with his wife over some money. They had an argument over some N20,000 he kept in the house and he said he was looking for the money to do something and an argument ensued. The case is under investigation.”

However, the woman is hospitalized as a neighbour who didn’t want to be named said, “The wife is pregnant, she refused to give the man N3,000 from the N20,000.

The argument was heated and before we knew it, the man cut off her hand. No one can say why he did that but we were concerned about her she was rushed to a hospital.”
