Sunday Ushie, a 35 year old man, was arrested by the Cross River State Police Command, for allegedly killing his girlfriend identified as Nnena Samuel and having s*x with her corpse.
The man who confessed to the crime noted that he invited his girlfriend who had denied him opportunity to have s*x with her to his house and killed her with a knife before having s*x with her dead body.
“It is the work of the devil. I do not know why the devil used me. I am the one that killed her. I killed her with a knife.
“She was my girlfriend and I knew her for just two months before this incident happened. I had to sleep with her corpse after killing her.
“It was strange sleeping with a corpse. I never had s*x with her when she was alive because she never gave me that opportunity.
“I was always giving her money but she didn’t allow us to have s*x with her,” Mr. Ushie confessed.
According to Hafiz Inuwa, the acting Cross Rivers State Police Commissioner, who paraded the suspect at the command on Monday in Calabar, the state capital, he said that the deceased had two children.
He also added that his men swung into action immediately they received information on the incident on January 27, 2017, at Adijinkpor village located in Ikom Local Government Area.
“The incident happened on January 27, 2017, following a report at Ikom Divisional Police headquarters from one Cletus Etta of Adijinkpor village that his tenant had killed someone.
“Upon receiving this information, my men swung into action and arrested the suspect.
“The suspect confessed to have killed the woman before having carnal knowledge of her.
“Investigation is ongoing after which the suspect will be charged to court for murder,” Mr. Inuwa said.
