A man was arrested after his girlfriend’s lifeless body with a broken neck was discovered in her Akwa Ibom apartment
Uwakfon Sunday Akpan, a lady from Akwa Ibom State, died after being allegedly murdered by her live-in boyfriend, Godwin, in her apartment.
She was reportedly murdered on Tuesday. 13th of September According to Levite Akpan, a human rights activist, “the deceased is my cousin and was making preparations to bring her daughter back home.”
She had spoken with my mother about how she could help her daughter get to a bus that would take her to Uyo, where she lives. Uwakfon had made arrangements with a driver to have her daughter returned to her.
On Monday night, she called my mother to see if her daughter was ready to leave because she was supposed to leave on Tuesday, and my mother told her where she would meet the driver and her daughter.
My mom received a call from my cousin’s number on Tuesday, as early as Sam, thinking it was her. When my mother answered the phone, she noticed it was a male voice. The man then informed my mother that Uwak fon had died. My mother assumed it was a joke. She dialed the number several times until he revealed that Uwakfon was ill and had complained of headaches. He claimed he gave her paracetamol before leaving for church, only to return to find her dead.
“My mum doubted his story because when she spoke with Uwakfon, she didn’t sound like one who was sick. Some relatives went to my cousin’s house and found her lifeless body with wounds all over and her neck broken. We quickly invited the police and Godwin was arrested.”
“However, Godwin Essang who killed my cousin, is still denying he did not commit the crime. The major problem is the police are trying to accept inducement to kill the case. We need justice for Uwakfon Sunday Akpan.”
