A younger brother of the victim, Shagari Umar, said a loud cry by Aliyu attracted the attention of family members who rushed to where the victim was sleeping and found him in a pool of blood.
“We found his wife, Halima, sitting by the bedside holding the sharp knife with which she cut off the manhood of our brother,” Umar claimed.
He added that Halima would have been lynched by angry members of the family and neighbours but was spared “because she is pregnant and for the intervention of elders who rescued her and called in the police.”
