Rivers State Police Command has arrested and paraded one Favour Nweke, who bathed her husband, Ekelediri Nwokekoro, with hot groundnut oil over a squabble.
It would be recalled it was reported that the incident happened on Tuesday in
Okehi, Etche Local Government Area of the State.
While being paraded at the command’s headquarters along Moscow Road, Port Harcourt on Friday, the suspect confessed to have committed the heinous crime.
She told journalists that her husband recently started behaving strangely, which according to her, was linked to a crime he committed with his friends.
The housewife explained that the squabble began when she confronted her husband over his behaviour and alleged involvement in a crime. She said, “He will go out at about 2 o’clock in the night and will come back early in the morning. Sometimes he would go, and stay two or three days before coming back, then I asked him where are you even going?
So his friend called me and asked if I had heard what was on the ground, I said ‘What is that?’ He said my husband and some people were involved in one illegal act. He said they called somebody from Abuja that the person should come and work in Etche, and that they have a contract to give to the person and when the person came they d¥ped the person of N20 million.
I said he didn’t tell me; that I was hearing this for the first time. I said ‘no wonder this guy has been acting strange, planning on how to travel and go to one African country.!’ So this is the reason. So when he came back, I gr@bbed him and said this is what I heard and I confronted him but he refused and we quarrelled. We ended it that day. I then asked him what he did with his own share of the money. I heard some people bought land with their own, so what did you use your own to do?
As we were dr@gging that issue that morning, he h#t me, I ran into the kitchen with that oil and I po¥red it on him. That was how it happened.” She, however, denied the allegations that she was involved in extramarital affairs prior to the incident.
She pleaded for forgiveness, saying she did not know her actions would result in this.”I feel bad. Had I known that this thing would turn out like this I would not have done it to him. I will just go to my place and stay. I am begging for Nigerians, you people should forgive me” she added.
Her husband Ekelediri Nwokekoro from Okehi in Etche Local Government Area of the state is covered in bl#stErs but manages to utter a few words.
“This is the challenge I face this period, it is an acc#dent and I didn’t know it will occur this way,” Nwokekoro managed to mutter.
