A 53-year-old man identified as Lahai Sambolah has been arrested for allegedly chopping off the right ear of a 29-year old man with his teeth in Koboyah Town, Grand Cape Mount,
Mr. Sambola is said to have committed the act over suspicions of the victim having a love affair with his wife.
The incident occurred during the late evening hours of Friday, November 20.
According to suspect Sambolah, the victim, only identified as Fahnbulleh, has been in a love affair with his wife for the past four years and has been complaining to dwellers in the town, but was told to provide evidence.
Mr. Sambolah told police investigators that his wife and the victim usually meet at her friend’s residence, adding that a key is assigned to his wife by her friend.
Sambolah and his wife have been married since 1985 and have six children.
“I came from Teinii Town last Saturday night, and when I pushed the door, I met my wife and Fahnbulleh (victim) naked. When I discovered that it was him (Fahnbulleh), my wife tried to prevent me from harming her boyfriend and tightly held my private part in order for him to escape the scene,” he said.
Sambolah said, while fighting his wife and the victim, he chopped off the entire right ear of Fahnbulleh as a means of producing evidence.
Meanwhile, the victim is currently undergoing medical treatment at a local health facility in Tienii Town, Grand Cape Mount County.
