“It was not my intention to kill him. I never intended to do so. He had been disturbing me for sex. I killed my uncle when he tried to rape me,”

22-year-old lady Rebecca Tina, said this after she was arrested for killing her uncle.

Mathew was murdered at the Independence Layout area of Enugu on Thursday.

Tina, an indigene of Ikot Udobang Ukanafon, Akwa Ibom State, was arrested by the operatives of New Haven Police Station, Enugu, while attempting to escape, after committing the crime.

She told the police that her uncle had attempted to sleep with her for a very long time.

Tina claimed that she had been resisting Mathew’s amorous advances until the matter took a tragic turn around 8.30pm on October 26.

She added that she smashed a stone on her uncle’s head because the latter did not let her go.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Enugu State Police Command, Ebere Amaraizu, said investigations were ongoing on the murder.
