Man Bites Off Armed Robber's Ear And Manhood in Aba
Nemesis caught up with a suspected robber, Chijioke Ikechi, as a victim bit off his ear lobe and a substantial part of his penis during a robbery attack on a residence at Ukaegbu Road, Ogbor Hill, Aba, Abia State.
Ikechi and three other members of his gang had invaded the residence, dispossessed their victims of N300,000 and inflicted a machete cut on a resident, Ndubuisi Mba.
Residents of the area sent a distress call to a police patrol team as one of the victims held on to Ikechi after stripping him naked, biting off his penis and his ear lobe, while other members of the gang fled on sighting the police.
A resident told Vanguard: “We heard shouts that armed robbers were robbing near our house and called the police, who did not waste in responding.
“When they saw the police, some of the armed robbers ran away. The victim held on to one of them, tore his cloths and bit him badly before the police arrested him. We commend the Police team for responding to our call.”
Police Public Relations Officer, Abia State Command, Ezekiel Udeviotu Onyeke, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, who confirmed the incident, said the police recovered a machete and an iron pipe fitted with wood, resembling a gun from the gang.
The police spokesman added that Mba, who sustained a machete cut, had been receiving medical attention at an undisclosed hospital in the area, and appealed to the public to volunteer useful information that could help to nab fleeing members of the gang. He also stated that the severed penis and ear lobe has been declared dead and useless by medical experts and that they could not be reattached.
