A woman in Benin City, the Edo State capital, has reportedly killed a man after biting off his genitals during a scuffle.

It was gathered that the woman and the deceased got into an argument after she ran her car into the deceased's Honda SUV along Isihor area of the ancient city on New Year's day.

It was said that the argument, which went on for several minutes, eventually led to a scuffle resulting in the death of the man.

It was alleged that the woman went straight for the man's trousers, bit his penis with her mouth and spat it on the tarred road.

The gravely injured man reportedly died on his way to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital.

The woman was also said to be saved by some security personal from the scene of the incident as an angry mob threatened to harm her.

Joseph Edoigiawerie, the Edo State Police Public Relations Officer, however, told the media that the police have not yet received any information of the incident, but promised to find out from the Divisional Police Officer in charge of the area.
