A 17-year-old girl, Ramatu Tafida, has cut off the manhood of her 25-year-old fiance, Mr Abdullahi Sabo, in Jigawa State, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence has said.
The corps Spokesman in the state, Adamu Shehu, who confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria in Dutse on Saturday, said the incident occurred in Babura Local Government Area of the state.
Shehu said the victim, a resident of Kofar Gabas and a teacher at the Government Girls Secondary School Babura, was engaged under the N-Power programme of the Federal Government.
Shehu said, “The incident occurred on Thursday in Babura when the attention of our officers was drawn by a good Samaritan who informed them that some youths were about to lynch a girl in Kofar Arewa, the residence of the suspect, to revenge their friend’s death.
“Immediately, the officers swung into action and went to the scene and whisked the girl away to our office for safety, but they still followed her.
