The suspect identified as  Awwal Usman, hails from Dogon Ruwa village Ari in Ningi Local Government Area of Bauchi State, had a misunderstanding with Sabo Abduwa, his friend and over reacted.


While speaking in court, the Prosecutor Inspector, Yusuf Musa, told the court that the misunder­standing between them resulted in a physical fight, which made Aww­al bring out a machete and hit his friend on his hands.

Yusuf said that the impact of the cut made one of the hands to fall down while the remaining one was dangling.

The Police prosecutor said that Abduwa was taken to General Hos­pital Ningi where the remaining hand was amputated, adding that the hospital battled to save his life because of the injuries he sustained as a result of the deep cut, contrary to section 241 of the penal code.
