Younger brother to the victim, Usman Umar, told our correspondent that his brother, Aliyu Umar, was sleeping in the same room with his first wife Halima who woke up at about 2. am and cut off his penis .
According to Usman, Halimat allegedly drugged Umar before they went to bed which gave her the opportunity to commit the crime without resistance from her husband.
Usman further explained that Halima was the first wife of his brother, adding that there has been serious crises between Halima and her husband since since he took a second wife .
” Halima had engaged my brother and his new wife in crisis since their marriage about three years ago. My brother was rushed from Tella, about 105 kilometers from the headquarters, to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC),Jalingo for medical attention.
Usman said that his brother has been referred from FMC Jalingo to the FMC, in neighbouring Gombe state which may have better facilities to handle his challenge.
