“The two had been drinking for sometime when the man started kissing the woman and it’s not clear what caused her to turn against her lover.
After biting off a very big chunk of the tongue, the woman swallowed it and fled leaving the man writhing in pain and he was rushed to the hospital,” he said.
Area chief Hassan Guyo said a manhunt has been launched for the woman .
“The man cannot talk as a big part of his tongue is missing while the suspect responsible for the attack has gone missing,” he said.
