Widow Beheaded For Denying Man Sex
Mrs Ngozi Peter's offense was that she refused the five years sex overtures from Mr Friday Chukwu after the death of her husband.
Friday Chukwu was said to have trailed the woman to the farm, where he attempted to rape her, but when she refused, he allegedly beheaded her.
The gruesome murder of the mother of three has created pandemonium at Azuitumo, Oshiegbe Ezza North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.
A resident of the area, Samson Nwezza, told Bounce News that the man started making overtures to the window shortly after the death of her husband five years ago.
The victim was said to have stoutly rejected the advances made to her because she had resolved not to remarry after her husband's death.
The source said after Chukwu committed the dastardly act, the suspect became confused and rushed to his brother in-law’s house where he opened up and confessed to the crime.
The death of the women and the subsequent discovery of her lifeless body in the farm caused tension and pandemonium in the area.
Friday was later arrested by the youths after a thorough search for him, and was handed over to the police in the area.
Mr Uchenna Anochie, brother in-law to the deceased, told Bounce News the death was shocking, and disheartening as the widow was doing her best to make ends meet.
He said such woman struggling to cope with life should have been pitied, but wondered why she was murdered in the most gruesome manner.
He therefore called on legal officers in the state, other individuals, as well as the Federated International Women Lawyers (FIFA) and Legal Council of Nigeria, Ebonyi State branch, to come to their aid.
The spokesperson for the police, Loveth Odah, confirmed the incident, and said the suspect was in Police custody.
