Richard Effiok, a 30-year-old man has confessed to stabbing his girlfriend after three rounds of sex.
The deceased identified as Bassey Udoh, 23, was stabbed by her boyfiend on May 22, 2015, at Nelson Mandela Street in Calabar, Cross River state.
According to The Punch, the suspect made the confession at the headquarters of the state police command, when he was paraded along with other suspected criminals by the commissioner of police, Henry Fadairo.
The suspect who hails from Akpabuyo Local Government area of the state, said:“The problem started when I had three rounds of sex with the lady and gave her N1,000 as transport fare back home, but she demanded N5,000. Bassey is my lover. We have been dating for two years. On the day of her death, we had three rounds of sex. I can’t really say if I was tempted by the devil to kill her.”
He further said: “When she refused to collect the N1,000 that I gave her, we started quarrelling and it led to a fight. I brought out a sharp kitchen knife and stabbed her. After stabbing her, she screamed and neighbours broke into my room. They saw her on the ground in a pool of blood. She later died.”
His neighbours called the police who came to arrest him. He added that he regrets his actions and wished he did not kill her.
