30-Year Old Man Kills Girlfriend, As Another 25-Year Old Murders Vigilante Member

A 30-year old man, Richard Efiok, has stabbed his girlfriend, Miss Udoh Bassey, to death following disagreement over money.

Speaking to Nigerian Tribune while being paraded by the Cross River State Police Command on Monday, Efiok, who is an indigene of Ikot Ewa in Akpabuyo Local Government Area of the state said the incident happened on May 22, 2015, adding “she actually visited me that fateful night and we made love.

“The following morning, she started a fight when I gave her N1, 000. She broke a bottle and stabbed me on my head. I rushed into the kitchen, brought a knife and stabbed her too. Neighbours later rushed her to the hospital where she gave up the ghost.”

Similarly, 25 years old Cyril Etim Ojang, who allegedly beheaded a vigilante member at Akamkpa Local Government Area of the state, is also cooling his heels at the State Police facilities, Diamond Hill, Calabar.

Ojang, who confessed to the crime said “one Friday, I went to one compound in my community and stole. On Sunday, I went there again but this time, I ran out of luck as people started pursuing me. I ran into the bush but my assailants were not ready to give up the pursuit. At a point, I hid myself somewhere in the bush, but one man, who I do not know his name, found me there and used his matchet on me. At a point, I over-powered him, collected his matchet and murdered him.

“I went home with the matchet with which I murdered the man, and told my parents. My dad gave me transport fare and advised me to escape. I escaped to Akwa Ibom State. But few weeks after, I was told that the police had arrested my dad. Later, I was picked up by the police and brought back here.”

In his brief remarks, Commissioner of Police, Cross River State Command, Mr Henry Fadairo, said since the commencement of intensive clampdown on criminals in the state between December 2014 and August this year, 150 suspects have been arrested including 14 hardened criminals involved in various criminal activities.”
