A 20-year-old lady, Blessing John, has been arrested for biting off the manhood of her boyfriend, simply identified as Johnson, while trying to escape from being raped by him.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Blessing is in the custody of the Lagos State Criminal Intelligence Investigation Department (SCIID), Yaba.
The report said the suspect and her victim have been dating for sometime but trouble erupted during her last visit to his residence, an occasion she was menstruating but Johnson was adamant on sleeping with her.
“I told him I was on my menstrual period and that he should wait until Sunday, but he insisted on checking.
“Usually, we see more than once in a week, but the last time I saw him was a week ago. In fact, I was with him when I started having menstrual pains. I was surprised he didn’t believe me.
“Johnson insisted on having sex with me and when I refused, he hit me on my back. I was so pained that I bit his manhood. I didn’t mean to harm him,” NAN quoted the suspect as saying.
