41-year old man, King Akpanke has been arrested by the police in
Calabar for murdering his step-mother’s lover over sexual intercourse.
The suspect who confessed to committing the crime in an interview
with newsmen at the State Police headquarters on Wednesday said before
the unfortunate incident he had on several occasions warned the
young-man to stop coming to his late father’s house to have sexual
intercourse with his step-mother.
“On that fateful day when we fought, he came to my house
around 9 o’clock, he abused me and nobody was there in the house. The
house belongs to my late father and I am the third son of my father. I
was the only person in the house so when he started abusing me we
fought, he brought a stick to hit me but I went inside and brought a
knife and stabbed him on the head.
“So it was later discovered that he is dead. I am very sorry because
it was a mistake. The young man was having constant sexual intercourse
with my late father’s wife. I warned him several times to stay off the
house which belongs to my father but he refused he always comes there to
have sex with her. He has been calling me all sorts of names like armed
robber. He had always planned to kill me”
