A young farmer, Sunday Ushie, on Monday in Calabar narrated how he killed his girlfriend and had sex with the corpse.
Ushie said he invited the mother of two known as Nnena Samuel to his house but denied her sex after spending money on her.He confessed he killed her with a knife at his home.
Parading Ushie at the State police headquarters, the State Acting Commissioner of Police, Hafiz Inuwa, said the suspect was nabbed following a report by the landlord of the deceased .
“This suspect was arrested on January 27, 2017, at about 10.55pm, following a report at the Ikom Police Division by one Cletus Etta of Adijinkpor village that his tenant was brutally murdered.
“Her right hand and left leg and mouth were severed by the suspect. The children of the deceased – Hezekiah (11) and Ezekiel (9) – told the police that their mother was taken out by the suspect on the night of January 26, but did not return home.
“The suspect has been arrested in connection with the crime and he has confessed that he killed the woman before having sex with her. Investigation is ongoing, after which he will be charged to court for murder,” the police commissioner said.
Regretting his action,Ushie said it was the devil that caused it.
“It is the work of the devil. I do not know how it happened. I am the one that killed her. She was my girlfriend and I knew her for two months before this incident. I slept with her corpse after killing her.
“It was strange sleeping with a corpse. I never had sex with her while she was alive because she never gave me that opportunity. I was always giving her money, but she didn’t allow us to have sex,”the suspect said.
