A Magistrates’ court on Monday ordered the arrest of a hotel director, 38-year-old Mrs Mary Joan Adeiekwe who allegedly bit off the ear of her manager, Chinwendu Nkemakolam, for demanding her monthly salary after she sacked her in Lagos State, western Nigeria.

Anambra State-born Adeikwe was arrested and charged before Magistrate M.B. Folami of Ejigbo Court for allegedly assaulting Nkemakolam.

After she was released on bail, she refused to show up for trial.
The incident happened at the hotel premises located at 38, Olusesi Street, Ikotun where the victim went to collect her salary as promised by Adeiekwe.

The victim, who is a graduate of Business Administration from the Lagos State Polytechnic, LASPOTHEC, was employed by Adeiekwe to manage her hotel on N25,000 salary every month.
Barely a few months after she took the job, Adeiekwe sacked her without pay but asked her to come for her salary at a specific date..

According to Nkemakolam, when she went to the hotel to collect her money, Adeiekwe got angry, grabbed her ear and bit off part of it.
She was bleeding profusely and was taken to Igando General Hospital with the piece of ear that fell off.

But before they reached the hospital the piece of ear was already dead and doctors said it could not be stitched back.

The matter was reported at Ikotun Police Division and Adeiekwe was arrested and charged with three-count charge of felony, assault and wounding under the Criminal Code.
She was granted bail in the sum of N50,000 with one surety in like sum.

The matter suffered several adjournments because Adeiekwe refused to show up for trial.
When the matter came up again on Monday, Adeiekwe did not show up and her counsel informed the court that they want to settle the matter out of court by paying the victim N25,000 being her salary and medical bills.

Folami insisted that the defendant must appear in court and explain why she won’t face trial.
The matter was adjourned till 1 June, 2015.

    There is no settling out of court here. Dis lady has been maimed 4 life & u think dat just paying her medical bills compensates 4d damage. D court shd determine wat is a good compensation package 4 her.

    If dat dog dat bit her refuses 2 show up @d hearing again, I think d court shd knw dat it would hav 2 charge her 4 contempt.

    This is a wicket occult bastard man. Refused to pay salary then bite off the ladys ear. That man or woman must be arrested unless he paid bribe but god will hunt her no matte how many years it takes.

    Working in Nigeria is terrible most managers do not pay salary and they live well with no pity to their workers. How do they expect their staff to manage or live?

    @ Metu Nyetu, well said. however I dont seems to grasp the judicial system in Nigeria, blatant disregard by the accused to appear in court should be met by bench warrant,and punishment for contempt will follow, the company the victim works for will be fine to pay huge compensation way way beyond what the senseless people are suggesting before the accused will be sentenced for assault. This is nonsense

    This is one area where Buhari need to straightening up as soon as he mount on that seat. It is ludicrous for that woman to shun the court summon. That is a contempt of court. Plus is she a cannibal trying to practice cannibalism? Some people are just behaving badly.
