The police on Wednesday arraigned a 32-year-old woman, Rose Stephen, at a Chief Magistrates Court in Kaduna on charges of biting off man’s finger during a fight.
Rose Stephen, residing at Barnawa, Kaduna, is facing a two-count charge of assault and causing grievous harm.
The Prosecutor, Inspector Chidi Leo, narrated in court that Francis Timothy of same address, reported the matter at the Barnawa Police Station on September 5.
