Tragedy struck at Iwuru community in Biase Local
Government Area of Cross River State as a 45-years-old
man simply identified as ‘Bassey Akwa Ibom,’ allegedly killed
his wife for denying him sex.
The suspect and his late wife, popularly called Mmamma,
were said to be farmers and had lived in Big Iwuru with their
seven children for decades before the ugly incident. According
to eye witness account, the incident happened on Thursday, last
week at  about noon when the duo went for their usual farm
work and a quarrel ensued between them.
The witness, said the man had demanded for sex from his wife
but she told him that she was tired and begged him to hold on
until they get back to the house in the evening.
“I heard the late wife begging that he should hold on until they
get home, but the man was not prepared to let go as he rather,
decided to beat her up after he had tried unsuccessfully to make
love to her in the farm.”
Consequent upon this, the woman slumped and gave up the ghost
after she had shouted for help and none came.
At the village, some neigbhours confided in Daily Sun that the
suspect is fond of torturing the wife.
According to them, they had separated fights between the duo
on the flimsy excuse that the woman was no longer cooperating
with the suspect aqnd on such occasions, he either  threatened to
send her packing or deal with her.
One of the neighbours, said: “We had tried to settle them to no
avail. That man  always complained about the late wife. We
have often times pleaded with him to leave the woman alone
before she dies in his hand and finally, she has died. “This has
put the entire community in trouble because police would expect
us to provide information about the incident. As I am talking
with you, most youths have fled the village for fear of being
arrested. Now, who will take care of the seven children left
behind by this woman?”
Meanwhile, the youths of Iwuru have threatened to ostracise
Bassey from the community once he released by the police,
saying such a man cannot live in their midst anymore because
he has committed grave crime against his host community.
It was gathered that but for the intervention of some elders and
the children left behind, the man would have been lynched even
before police’s investigation.
Checks by Daily Sun revealed that the man has been arrested
and was being detained at Biase Divisional Police station,
undergoing interrogation.
When contacted on phone, the Police Public Relations Officer
of the Cross River State Police Command, Mr. Hogan
Bassey, said such matter had not been made known to his
office.
