30-year old Woman Bites Off Neighbour Ear and Swallow It In Anger.
A 30-year old house wife indentified as Mrs Chizoba Ejike, has appeared before an Ejigbo Magistrates’ Court sitting in Lagos for allegedly biting off the ear of her neighbour and swallowing it in anger.
According to other neighbours, the suspect was engaged in a fight with the victim, one Mrs. Ndidi Eze at their residence at 20, Brinfalami Street, Ejigbo area of the state and in the process, Mrs Ejike grabbed the victim's left ear and bit off a portion which she allegedly swallowed.
Mrs. Eze was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The neighbours added that both women have always fought since they started living in the house.
When Mrs Ejike was first charged to court and appeared before Magistrate M.B.Folami, she pleaded guilty and was remanded in prison custody at Kirikiri, Lagos while the case was adjourned for sentencing.
But when the case was called up again on Monday, she changed her plea to not guilty and her counsel, Barister Ogbedeleto asked that she be granted bail by the court.
However, the complainant, Mrs Eze had written a withdrawal letter for the case to be discontinued and so the court struck it out and the suspect was set free.
