28-Year-Old Artisan Kills Wife For Cheating On Him
The Anambra State Police Command has arrested a 28-year-old artisan, Chukwuemeka Obijiofor for killing his wife and child.
Obijiofor who is from Ofufe Nza village in the Ekwusigo LGA of Anambra State last month said he killed the woman because he found out she was cheating on him with some unknown men.
He also confessed to killing his child because his wife confirmed to him that the boy was not his and that he may have been gripped by unknown spirits, which compelled him to kill both of them.
The suspect who killed the victims with a shovel was on Saturday paraded before journalists at the Police Command Headquarters, Amawbia by the spokesperson of the Command, CSP Haruna Mohammed.
“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.
Asked why he also killed his innocent child, Obijiofor said his late wife disclosed to him that he was not the biological father of the child.
He blamed his action on some evil spirits who possessed him, saying that his condition was aggravated by Indian hemp he smoked before the incident.
