Man Butchers Girlfriend For Resisting Forceful Sex In Akwa Ibom


A twenty-year-old man, Elisha, who is said be a student of the University of Uyo has allegedly murdered his auxiliary nurse girlfriend and butchered her body over her refusal to accede to his sexual demand.

The incident has thrown the scene of the incident located along Atiku Abubakar Way in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State’s capital into grief.

LEADERSHIP gathered that the sad incident occurred in the early hours of Tuesday at about 7am.

Although the remote reason for the dastardly act could not be ascertained at the time of filing this report, the immediate cause, our correspondent learnt, may not be unconnected with aggressive demand for sex by the boyfriend.

Elisha was said to have lured the slain nursing assistant who was on the way to work, by diverting her to his one room apartment on the Atiku Abubakar Way.

A resident of the compound, an ailing woman of about 80 years who could barely communicate clearly, said she managed to reach the door, knocked and pleaded with Elisha to stop beating the deceased but she was ignored.

“I am not strong, but despite my frail and weak body, I managed to go and knocked at the door, but Elisha refused to open. Afterwards, I could no longer hear the beating and the shouting for help, I thought the fight had stopped, not knowing he had killed the lady and cut her body to several pieces.

“He later broke the ceiling, climbed and hid himself before the Police came, broke the door into the house, where the body parts of the deceased were picked in bits from the naked mattress into sack bags and taken to the Police station. Elisha was later fished out from the ceiling and taken along to the station,” she narrated.

Another resident of the compound, who would not want his name in print, recalled that when the fight became more intense, “I called his father, who arrived, knocked on the door and appealed to his son, warning him against taking the laws into his own hands, but the warning was not heeded and the father left.”

“The man had suddenly closed the door immediately on sighting the father in the compound, and before others could arrive, he had already killed the lady, shredded her into pieces and went into hiding in the ceiling of the room, where the Police came to bring him down for arrest.”

Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Timfon John, said the case has been transferred to the State Police headquarters at Ikot Akpanabia, in Uyo.

He stressed that the police have arrested the suspect where he is currently being interrogated.
