Man arrested for ripping off wife’s private parts
Police in Igembe North are holding a man who assaulted his teenage wife and ripped her private parts for allegedly having an extramarital affair.
Igembe North OCPD Peter Kimani said the suspect was arrested after the 7pm incident in Murunya area, Mutuati in Meru County which was reported by the complainant’s mother.
According the police, the woman, who sustained serious injuries in her genitalia, is recuperating at Mutuati sub-county hospital.
The suspect was arrested after he quarreled with his 18-year-old wife whom he claims had an extra-marital affair.
“He reportedly assaulted her and ripped her private parts using his fingers. We have arrested the suspect and the complainant has been taken to Mutuati sub-county hospital for treatment,” Kimani told the Nation on phone.
However, when contacted the victim’s mother said her daughter had not been taken to any hospital.
She appealed to well-wishers to come to her aid, adding that her daughter’s genitalia was beginning to rot away and therefore needed specialised treatment.
