Abubakar Saeed, a Nigerian father of two, has told the story of how phone snatchers chopped off his hand in Kaduna State.

It had earlier been reported that Saeed, a jewelry seller, was attacked while sitting in front of his family’s residence on Musa Danbade Street in Rigasa, Igabi LGA last month. 

Speaking to the Daily Trust, Saeed said he was inside the room with his wife and kids when the electricity went off and he decided to go outside to buy mosquito coil. He later sat down in front of the house to go through the Eid al-Fitr postings on his Facebook page.

“I sat there replying to comments made on my post on Facebook when someone hit me on the hand. I thought it was a stick, so I ran into the compound, only to realize that my hand has been cut off. I called my mother, telling her my hand had been cut off by thieves,” he said.

He said he couldn’t imagine what had happened to him because his body was covered in blood before he was rushed to a private hospital from where he was transferred to 44 Army Hospital.

It was gathered that Saeed’s attackers were teenagers of about 20 years old who lived not too far away from his street but have been at large since the incident.

He said he has never met his attackers even though they lived in the same community.

Phone snatching has become a growing concern within the metropolis, with many residents falling victim of this crime in recent months.
