gynecologist, Cherechi Okonko attached to the Federal Medical Centre Owerri in Imo state is said to have been admitted at the hospital as a result of his wife’s severe cuts which chopped off both his tongue and nose, affecting part of his lower jaw.
The incident occurred Thursday at the Survivor’s residence in the World Bank area of Owerri, the state capital.
Speaking to the reporter, anonymous staff of FMC Owerri disclosed that their colleague was taken to the hospital bleeding profusely.
“The victim is our doctor here, and he was bleeding all over his body when they brought him here last night.”
“He was stabilised, although he could not talk up till now. It was horrible.”
Our reporter who tried in vain to know what actually led to the incident, noted further that the weird wife after allegedly cutting off her husband’s parts, invited her mother-in-law on phone to come and carry her son’s corpse.
Orlando Ikeokwu, the Imo Police Public Relation Officer stated that, although it was a family issue, the command has waded into it with a view to finding out the truth.
Meanwhile, Cherechi’s incident has made it the fourth consecutive cases of domestic violence in the state out of which one death was recorded.
