Man cuts off 2-year-old girl’s finger for no reason in Lagos


The police at Sabo station on Tuesday arraigned a 49-year old ‘Pastor’, Moyo Martins at Yaba  Chief Magistrate’s Court for allegedly cutting off the fingers of a 2-year old girl, Sadiat Faleye.

Last week Thursday, Sadiat’s mother left her in the company of the man to quickly go and have her bath. But after about 5mins neighbors alerted her that they heard a loud cry of pain from her daughter and she quickly rushed out in panic. On getting to the man’s room she found two of her daughter’s little fingers lying on the floor including the ring on one of the fingers. The girl was quickly rushed to a private hospital for medical attention so she could stop losing blood.

Mr Moyo denied ever knowing anything about her chopped off fingers, but when the police came for him, he confessed he sawed off the fingers in his room. He appealed to the mother of the little girl to forgive him because it happened in error.
