Operatives of Ogun State security network codenamed Amotekun, have arrested a 40-year-old logger, Ogidan Yussuf, for allegedly cutting the genital organ of his employer, Oluwo Shakiru, and assaulting his wife over loss of equipment.
The suspect, a resident of Wuraola Street, Epe, in Ijebu East LGA was working for the victim as a saw machine operator.
The state commander of Amotekun, David Akinremi, disclosed this yesterday in a statement issued in Abeokuta.
Akinremi said the incident happened after two months that the suspect had been dodging his boss over a loss of the machine.
He said, “The insistence of the victim to get back his saw, coupled with the assault on the victim’s wife by the suspect led to a physical fight.
“In the process, the suspects allegedly gripped the victim’s genital organ and almost yank it off only to escape from the scene before his arrest by our operatives.
“The victim was immediately rushed to Olabisi Onabanjo Teaching Hospital and is responding to treatment while the suspect who confessed to the dastardly act has been handed over to the police for prosecution.”
