A Ghanaian hairdresser, Beatrice Agyapong, has lost her lower lip, after the girlfriend of the man, who gave her a ride in his car, beat her up at her beauty salon.
Agyapong, 25, who is also an ulcer patient, revealed that she had been on her way to get something to eat when she saw a man, she knew driving a car. She asked him for a lift to her destination, Kwesimintsim and he obliged.
Agyapong got her meal and returned to the beauty shop, where the girlfriend of the man attacked her.
She said, “She grabbed my lip and started chewing it as I struggled to defend myself but to no avail; suddenly I saw my blood splashing on the floor. That was the last thing I remember at the salon.
I only woke up to find out I am at the hospital and my lower lip was gone.”
Agyapong added, “I was recently treated of ulcer and was advised by doctors to adopt the habit of eating early to avoid complications.”
“On Friday, 18th January, 2019 at about 8am, I decided to go to Kwesimintsim to buy food. Just as I stepped out of the house, I saw a private car known to me passing, so I signalled it to a stop asked for a lift to Kwesimintsim so I could find some food to buy.”
A nurse at Kwesimintsim hospital, where Agyapong is receiving treatment, Belinda Hayford, who confirmed the incident. She said, the bitten flesh was not brought along so doctors on duty sent for the bitten off flesh but by the time it was the cells were dead.
She explained that the only way to get another lip for Beatrice Agyapong is through plastic surgery.
A report has since been made to the Kwesimintsim police but the perpetrator is yet to be arrested.
