41 year old king Akpanke has been arrested in Calabar for the murder of his stepmother’s secret lover.
The accused who is resident in Calabar is said to have carried out his threat after warning the deceased to stop sneaking in his late father’s house to sleep with his Step mother.
Though the suspect has confessed that he actually murdered the man, Akpanke said he acted in self defence, claiming the man wanted to kill him before he was able to overpower him.
“On that day, he came to my house around 9am to abuse me. There was nobody in the house. The house belongs to my late father and I am the third son.
So, when he started abusing me, we fought. He brought a stick, but I went inside and took a knife and stabbed him in the head.
I later discovered that he had died. It was a mistake. The young man was having regular sex with my late father’s wife.
I warned him several times to stay off the house, but he refused. He was always in our house to have sex with her. He called me all sorts of names. He planned to kill me.”
The state Commissioner of Police, Henry Fadairo, confirmed the arrest of Akpanke, stating that he would be charged to court after the police had concluded its investigations.
