Princess Odume, the corps member whom the police nabbed for allegedly killing a man, identified as Japhet Akwaowo in Akwa Ibom on Sunday has disclosed the reason for her action; self-defence
The police spokesperson in the state, Odiko Ogbeche-Macdon, who disclosed this on Tuesday, said that Odume claimed Akwaowo threatened to kill her when she refused to oblige his request to undress so that he could have sex with her.
Ogbechie-Macdon said: “She 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.
“She said 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.”
