In April, 2016 The owner of the house had on sighting the guy’s hand fiddling through his window looking for the phone, quickly reached for a cutlass and dropped the guy’s hands on the floor. Mr burglar ran away into the night crying with his amputated hand.
While allegedly trying to steal a phone through someone’s window, in Sapele, Delta state, the occupant of the room sighted him and cut off his right hand. He was later treated in a hospital. Almost a year after, he was caught stealing again, and mercilessly beaten.
