Landlady's Children Cut Off 35-Year-Old Tenant's Scrotum (Photo)



The children of an undisclosed landlady have reportedly cut off the scrotum of a 35-year-old man, Yinka Offehin, who resides in their mother’s house.

The incident which reportedly took place at Popoola Street, off Abaranje Road in the Ikotun area of Lagos State has left the victim battling for his life at a private hospital.

The wife of the victim, Bisis, while narrating the ordeal to Punch reporter said her husband, who is an indigene of Edo State, was attacked by the children of the landlady while sleeping in his room with his family members. She gave the names of the assailants as Solomon and Damilola.

“On Thursday morning, around 3am, while we were sleeping, we heard loud bangs on our door. We initially thought they were armed robbers because the house beside ours had recently been robbed. When they entered, we saw they were children of our landlady. They began destroying our electronics and other property. There were two of them. One held a knife in his hand. They took N800,000. They descended on my husband and he also fought back. In that confusion, my husband shouted and we saw that one of the attackers had cut Yinka’s scrotum. I can’t say what they used to cut off my husband’s scrotum,” she said.

Bisi said her husband managed to hold one of the assailants till dawn while the other successfully fled the scene of the incident. She said Yinka was taken to private hospital as he could not be admitted at a general hospital because of the ongoing doctors’ strike.

The victim, while narrating his ordeal to the journalist who visited him at the hospital, said he had a misunderstanding with his landlady and was asked to vacate the premises.

“I was asked to leave the house immediately, but after the intervention of the traditional ruler of the community, I was asked to leave by the end of August. But that decision did not go down well with the children of my landlady and they continued to make trouble with me. I was already planning to leave their house and had even contacted an agent when they attacked me without any provocation. I want the government to fight for me,” Yinka said.

Meanwhile, a doctor in the hospital, who didn’t want his name published, confirmed that Yinka would need at least three months to recover.

When contacted, the state police command spokesperson, Ngozi Braide, confirmed the incident.

“It was around 3am, while the victim was sleeping in his room, that one Solomon Olowogbemi and Damilola Olayeye, the children of his landlady, came in and started fighting with him,” Braide said. “In the process, they inflicted injury on him with an unknown object. The skin of his scrotum was partly cut off, thereby exposing one of his testicles. The two suspects have been arrested and detained and the victim taken to a hospital.”
