The operatives of the Nigerian Police Force in Cross River State, have apprehended a 35-year-old man identified as Okon Ubem who allegedly killed his wife, Eka Imaobong, after having s*x with her in the farm.
According to Punch Metro, the suspect from Ikot-Okpora village in Biase Local Government Area of Okon Ubem, who will soon be charged to court for murder, is also accused of killing his 8-year-old stepson identified as Godswill at the same scene of the incident.
Speaking while addressing journalists in Calabar on Tuesday, the Cross River State Commissioner of Police, Hafiz Inuwa, said the suspect was arrested on May 13, 2017 following a tip-off by one John Bassey, adding that he had confessed to the crime and would soon be charged to court.
“On May 13, 2017, at about 1500 hours, one John Bassey (male) of Ikot-Okpora village in Biase LGA reported to the Divisional Police headquarters in Akpet Central that one of his tenants, Okon Ubem, went to farm where he murdered his wife, Eka Imaobong, and her eight year-old son, Godswill. The suspect confessed to the crime and will be arraigned in court soon,” he said.
In an interview with Southern City News, Ubem alleged that he killed his wife because she stole his N40,000, adding that he murdered the stepson because the 8-year-old boy insulted him.
Ubem, who did not show remorse for the dastardly act, said he murdered the wife after making love to her in the bush.
“She stole my N40,000. So, I went to meet her in the farm and killed her. Yes, I made love to her before killing her. I also killed the stepson because he abused me,” he said.
