The Ondo State Police Command on Sunday said it had arrested a man, Idowu Benson , for allegedly attacking his wife, Kemi Idowu , and cutting two of her fingers .
It was gathered that the suspect, who came into his house at Oba Ile in the Akure North Local Government Area of the state around 7pm on the day , was masked, armed with a machete and pretended to be a hired assassin.
The 42 – year – old man was said to have told Kemi that he was sent to kill her and in an attempt to cut her head , he cut the two fingers .
A source said , “ The suspect left the house with the two fingers , while the woman was rolling on the floor in pain. ”
The source added that it was Kemi’ s cry that attracted neighbours who invited the police. The policemen were said to have seen Idowu’ s mobile phone on the ground.
The police reportedly invited the suspect, who allegedly confessed to the crime during interrogation .
The Police Public Relations Officer , Femi Joseph , said Idowu blamed the act on the devil, adding that he had yet to tell the police where he kept the two fingers .
