I killed my wife and child because she told me the boy wasn’t mine – Man tells Police

An artisan, Chukwuemeka Obijiofor, 28, of Ofufe Nza village in the Ekwusigo LGA of Anambra State who was arrested last month for murdering his wife and child said he killed the woman because he found out she was cheating on him with some unknown men.

Chukwuemeka also confessed to the killing of his child because his wife confirmed to him that the boy was not his blood and that he may have been taken hold of by unknown spirits, which made him kill both of them.

The suspect who admitted to killed the victims with a shovel was on Saturday paraded before journalists at the Anambra State Police Command Headquarters.

Obijiofor who spoke to Newsmen said, “On that fateful day, I had gone to borrow money from a client to take to her (wife) so that she can cook food early and not wait for me to come back before cooking.


“When I came home to give her the money, I saw two strange men in my house. When I queried my wife, she took me to the backyard, telling me to calm down.

“Please, I want you people to forgive me, what happened was a mistake. She was trying to calm me down when I noticed that the men had left. They left without even greeting me. So, I got annoyed and left my wife and child. I told her to leave me and let me go on my own since she has already chosen the people she loves.

“I went my own and sat somewhere to smoke my hemp, but my wife was still following me about and dragging with me. She did not want me to continue my work, so after I had taken my hemp, I found out that it made the matter even worse. That was what happened.”

When questioned why he also killed his child, Obijiofor said his late wife told him that the child does not belong to him.

Obijofor claimed to have been possesed by evil spirits who prompted him to kill his wife and child, that the urge worsened as he had been smoking Indian hemp before the occurrence.
