The victim was rushed to a hospital in the area, but unfortunately, his ear could not be reattached.
“He was fighting with my mum and at a point he began to destroy some of our property. It was too much for me to bear so I tried to stop and that’s when he attacked and bit off my ear,” said the victim.

“Shortly after, he (Inim) also rushed in. He was stark naked. He said he wanted to report the same matter and we wondered how he could say he wanted to make a report after disfiguring somebody’s ear. We had to get something to put on him.”
