Man allegedly hacks Girlfriend to death, abandons lifeless body with broken neck
A lifeless female body has been found in an apartment in Akwa-Ibom state with a broken neck.
The corpse was said to be that of a lady, Uwakfon Sunday Akpan, who was killed on Tuesday, September 13 by her Boyfriend, Godwin.
A human rights activist, Levite Akpan, claimed that the deceased was her cousin and that before her death, she had spoken to her mum on how she would come to stay with her.
The Activist said: “The deceased had spoken with my Mum on how she could assist me to get to a transport bus to take her to Uyo where she stays.
“Uwakfon had made arrangements with a driver that will bring her daughter back to her. On Monday night, she called my mum to know if her daughter was set to go because she was supposed to leave on Tuesday, and my mum told her where she’ll meet with the driver and her daughter.”
“On Tuesday, my Mom got a call from my cousin’s number thinking it was her that was calling. When my Mum picked up the call, she noticed it was a male voice. Then, the guy told my mom that Uwakfon had passed on”.
The Activist further said, “My mum thought it was a joke. She called the line several times until he revealed that Uwakfon was sick and had complained about having headaches. He said he gave her paracetamol and left for Church only to return to meet her dead.”
“My mum doubted his story because when she spoke with Uwakfon, she didn’t sound like one who was sick. Some relatives went to my cousin’s house and found her lifeless body with wounds all over and her neck was broken. We quickly invited the Police and Godwin was arrested”
“However, Godwin Essang who killed my cousin is still denying he did not commit the crime. The major problem is the police are trying to accept inducement to kill the case. We need justice for Uwakfon Sunday Akpan.”
