A vicious matchet attack launched on a Nigerian, 23-year old Nsikak Amos Tommy, by a notorious Chinese man, simply identified as Njaga Chang at the Xin Xin Quarry in Akamkpa Local Government Area, South of Cross River State, left the Nigerian with four fingers in his right hand after one of his fingers was completely cut off by the Chinese, www.calitown.com can authoritatively reveal.
At 4.30 pm, Saturday, January 9, 2016, when the incident took place, www.calitown.com sources say the Chinese man, angered by the Nigerian’s slow response when told to turn on a generator at the quarry, flew into a rage, mouthed unprintable things and attacked Nsikak Tommy with a water hose. As the Nigerian took flight from the assault, Chang gave chase with a matchet, first deflating the tyres of the Nigerian’s motorcycle to prevent him from fleeing and aimed one cut to Tommy’s head.
Instinctively, the Nigerian raised his hand to block a cut aimed at his head and the matchet came down, neatly cutting off the finger and leaving him in a massive pool of blood as he cried for help.
After the incident, owners of the Xin Xin Quarry, who also own two other quarries in Akamkpa, Expanded and Fughou Quarries, rather than attend to the injured man, ferried the Chinese man to Calabar and had him hidden while workers at the quarry managed to take the wounded man for treatment at the Bakor Medical Centre, Calabar.
While the Police in Akamkpa seem to have turned the other way as all of this played out, we were reliably informed that their claim that the attacker was arrested and granted bail thereafter is a lie. Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Cross River State, John Aluu who was contacted by www.calitown.com, told us over the phone that he was yet to be briefed by the Police in Akamkpa and would get back to us “immediately I am briefed”. He was yet to, as we went to press.
