According to Shehu, the victim, a resident of Kofar Gabas and a teacher at Government Girls Secondary School Babura engaged under N-Power did not see the girls action coming.
“The incident occurred on Thursday in Babura when the attention of our officers was drawn by a good Samaritan who informed them that some youths were about to lynch a girl in Kofar Arewa, the residence of the suspect, to revenge for their friend.
“Immediately the officers swung into action and went to the scene and whisked the girl away to the office for safety, but they still followed her. It was upon reaching the office that we realised what led to the whole matter.
“Ramlatu confessed to have used a knife to cut off the manhood of her husband-to-be. According to her, Abdullahi is the love of her life and he was even introduced to her family members and has equally given the sum of N30,000 as an introduction fee.
“And because of that, she was free to be with him almost all the time. As a result they became too intimate that they engaged in sexual relationship.
