Lover cuts off girlfriend’s hand over alleged infidelity in Ebonyi
A middle-aged man, Chibisi Irem, on Tuesday chopped off his girlfriend’s hand for allegedly dating another man in Ebonyi.
It was gathered that the incident took place at Ishieke community, in the Ebonyi Local Government Area of the state, where the lovers run a restaurant.
Investigations by the newsmen revealed that Irem had severally warned his girlfriend, Chinyere, of her alleged infidelity with another man in the area and asked her to desist from dating the man, all to no avail.
