Police arrest 2 men for allegedly chopping-off each others wrists in Yobe.

This is contained in a statement by the Spokesman of the Command, ASP Dungus Abdulkarim, on Monday in Damaturu.

Abdulkarim said the suspects, both aged 25, were believed to be members of criminal gangs in the area.

“The suspects were arrested after information reached the police at about 20:30 p.m. today, that they fought each other with cutlass and sticks, which turned out to be bloody.

“As a result, both suspects palms of the wrist of the left hands were chopped off.
