Bricklayer cuts off woman’s hand with cutlass in Kwara


A middle-age bricklayer, simply identified as Lukman, on Saturday allegedly attacked and cut off the hand of a 60-year-old woman, Muibat Abifarin, with a cutlass.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the attacker, who was said to be showing traits of insanity, also attacked two of his co-tenants in a bungalow at Orolodo area, beside the Olomu’s palace in Omu-Aran.

Abifarin, who had her left hand severed from her body, was said to have been rushed to a hospital in the community, while the other two victims with varying degree of injuries were also being treated at Omu-Aran General Hospital.

A NAN correspondent, who was at the private hospital on Sunday, reports that no visitor was allowed access to Abifarin by the hospital management as she was said to be recovering from the surgery performed on her hand.

A nurse in the hospital, who preferred anonymity, told NAN that visitors could only be allowed around 6 p.m. when she might have fully recovered from the effect of the surgery.

She, however, described her condition as stable and that she was responding to treatment.

An eyewitness account by Azeez Abifarin, a student and son of the victim, said the incident happened around 10 p.m on Saturday as the family was about going to sleep.

“I think there was a kind of argument between Abeeb, my senior brother and Lukman over a dead goat been roasted by Lukman outside the compound which later degenerated and Abeeb was attacked with a cutlass.
