A 70 year old man, Ita Daniel Okpo , has been arrested by the police of Nsit Ibom Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom, for hacking his wife to death with a machete because she was cheating on him.
Ita Daniel, who hails from Mbiopkoro village, confessed to the crime.
“I regret my act, but I was forced to kill her because it was too much on me. In fact, at a point, she openly told me she would rather kill me than to stop sleeping with these men. To match words with action, she had been fighting me several times. So, on that fateful day, while we fought, I killed her” he said.
Mike Okoli, assistant commissioner of police, State Criminal Investigation Department, said the victim, 60-year old Alice Ita Daniel, was asleep when the Ita Daniel attacked her with a machete.
