Princess Odume, the corps member who was apprehended for killing a man in Akwa Ibom on Sunday, January 10 has explained why.
During interrogation by the police after she was arrested, the corps member who was nabbed while trying to jump over a fence after killing the young man identified as Japhet Akwaowo, reportedly stated that she did it in self-defence.
The police spokesperson in the state, Odiko Ogbeche-Macdo disclosed that Odume claimed Akwaowo threatened to kill her upon her refusal to oblige his request to remove her clothes so that he could have sex with her.
“Odume actually killed the young man identified as Akwaowo Japhet. She said she went to buy bean cake, akara, and saw a man that beckoned to her to come over to him. She said she went to meet him, they got talking and she found herself in his house.”
“Then she explained she waited for him outside and he went inside to bring a knife. He said he was going to stab her and no one would know what happened. She also said Japhet asked her to remove her clothes and she refused. What basically happened was that she overpowered him.”
