“I Killed My Wife Because I Couldn’t Make Love To Her” – Man Confesses
Delta State police command has nabbed a hunter identified as Omenogor (Surname withheld) in Ishiagu, Ndokwa West local government area of the state, for allegedly killing his wife and two children over allegation of witchcraft. It was gathered that the man became frustrated over his inability to make love to his wife, a situation he blamed on his wife’s alleged witchcraft. The public relations officer, Delta State police command, ASP Lucky Uyebeme, confirmed that the hunter is at present, helping the police at the state CID for their investigation. He further disclosed that some of his family members who allegedly aided him have also been arrested. According to the PPRO, the incident happened on Thursday evening when a quarrel between Omenogor and his wife degenerated into a free-for-all fight, leading to the death of his wife and two children.Further inquiry showed that the couple had been locked in accusation and counter accusation of witchcraft in the last three years, which family sources said culminated into the alleged inability of the hunter to perform his s*xual and civil responsibilities in recent times. There is also the allegation that the hunter’s late wife had confessed to being a “General Manager who decides’’ the fate of her husband’s relatives. While the trouble lasted, the woman was also quoted as claiming that she had “reduced her husband to an inconsequential personality.” Upon interrogation by the police, the hunter confessed that he had threatened to commit suicide on two occasions, adding that his decision to kill his wife and two children was informed by his inability to make love to his wife and even outside his matrimonial home.
