A 35-year-old man, Sunday Ushie, on Monday confessed to killing his purported ‘girlfriend’, identified as Nnena Samuel, and went ahead to have se x with the corpse, Punch reports.
The incident happened on January 26, 2017 in Adijinkpor village in Ikom Local Government Area of Cross River State.
Ushie, a cocoa farmer in Akparabong, confessed to the crime, saying that she never gave him the opportunity to have s*x with her while alive.
He said that he invited her to his house and killed her with knife before having s*x with the corpse. The farmer, who said he was regretting his action, blamed the incident on the devil.
“It is the work of the devil. I do not know how. I am the one that killed her. I killed her with knife. She was my girlfriend and I knew her for just two months before this incident happened. I slept with her corpse after killing her.
It was strange sleeping with a dead corpse. I never had s*x with her when she was alive because she never gave me that opportunity. I was always giving her money but she didn’t allow us to have se x.”
The suspect had invited the deceased mother-of-two out in the night of January 26 and took her to his apartment. He was said to have killed the woman when she refused to allow him have se x with her.
