Itoro his neighbor said:
“When he came back, we had gone to bed but some people were still outside. He went inside his room and slept off without shutting the door and because of too much drink, he excreted on himself.
His dog that was outside smelt the poo and went inside to eat it. In the process, the dog ate his private parts thinking it was meat or part of the excreta.”
“When we heard him scream, we thought hoodlums had attacked him. But when we got there, we saw that his private part was gone and his dog had blood on its mouth”
“By the time we finished cleaning him of the shit, he was bleeding so much and on the way to the hospital he died”
The man was living alone as his daughters were married and lived away from him. He has since been taken to his village for funeral.
