The corps member who was apprehended after killing a man in Akwa Ibom on Sunday January 10 has explained that she did it in self defence.

Princess Odume narrated her ordeal when she was interrogated by the police after being arrested for killing the young man identified as Japhet Akwaowo.

According to the police spokesperson in the state, Odiko Ogbeche-Macdon, he said Odume claimed Akwaowo threatened to kill her upon her refusal to oblige his request to remove her clothes so that he could have sex with her.

“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, Macdon said


  1. Are you telling us that you don’t know each before followed him? That’s a pure lie, though, something must have happened before leading to the killing of him no doubt about that.

  2. Everything is clear to Almighty God because this issue is clear to the corps member and the deceased, even the judge won’t know what to judge in this case.

  3. Nothing goes for noghting. The first time I read the news, I knew it must involve rape and attempted rape. The girl must not have gone out to buy something armed with knife. It must be the victim that produced the knife

  4. What self defense, the you even know the meaning? Are you police officer or who can witness you that what you are saying is true? You have to face the consequences.
