A serving member of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Akwa Ibom state, has been arrested for allegedly hacking an unidentified young man said to be her boyfriend to death with a machete.
The Newsacross.com gathered that Odiko Ogbeche-Macdon, a spokesman to the Akwa Ibom police, confirmed the incident to TheCable Lifestyle on Monday.
He said the lady, identified as Odume Princess, was taken into custody after the incident occurred on Sunday.
Although Odiko didn’t give further details on the case, he said: “She’s in our custody and investigation is ongoing.”
A witness who claimed to have arrived at the scene before the suspect was arrested took to Facebook to reveal that Odume was caught drenched in what was believed to be the victim’s blood and attempted to exit the crime scene.
“She is accused of killing a young guy early this (Sunday) morning at Abak Road. I saw a large crowd gathered at Abak road by Afahaoffot so I ran there and behold I saw this young lady been beaten and stripped totally naked,” he wrote.
“I immediately tried to gather information there and everyone there said that she was found this morning around 9.30 am trying to jump the fence of a young guy she went for hook-up with. Bloodstains were all over her.
“So she was caught and beaten to stupor and also stripped naked. According to the people at the scene, she matchet a young guy to death this morning whom she went out with. She killed the young guy instantly.
“After several cuts on his stomach and face, on trying to jump out from the fence she was caught. I feel pity for her ’cause the devil actually used her this morning to perform such wonders.”
