A Nigerian gynaecologist at the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, Owerri, was assaulted by his wife and left for dead after a quarrel a few nights ago.
According to reports, the woman hired some thugs who tied up her husband's hands while she used a knife to cut off his nose, upper teeth, tip of his tongue and part of his lower gum.
After the intense brutality, she called the man’s mother to come for her son’s corpse. Fortunately, though, the doctor who is a known gynaecologist in FMC, Owerri, was rushed to the hospital. He was eventually stabilized with the help of proactive doctors.
New reports confirm that the man is conscious. However, he cannot talk since he is on tracheotomy analysis.
He is yet to file charges or speak on the matter. Officers of the Imo State Police Command have not yet confirmed the incident but family members of the victim who chose to remain anonymous said that the family will make sure this atrocious act does not go unpunished.
