A 22-year-old lady, identified as Tina Rebecca Sunday, has been arrested by the Enugu State Police Command, for killing her uncle, identified as Friday Mathew.
The incident occurred in the Independence Layout area of Enugu on Thursday, October 26, 2017.
It was gathered that the lady, Tina, a native of Ikot Udobang Ukanafon, in Akwa Ibom State, lived with the now deceased uncle in Ezilo Street, Independence Layout, Enugu.
It was further gathered that Tina was arrested by operatives of the New Haven police station, Enugu, while attempting to escape, after committing the crime.
But the lady, in her confessional statement, has described the killing as accidental.
Tina disclosed that she killed Mathew, a 48-year-old man, while struggling to escape his attempt to have forceful carnal knowledge of her.
She said her uncle has been trying to sleep with her for a very long time.
Rebecca said she has been resisting Mathew’s amorous advances, but the uncle never gave up, until the matter took a tragic turn around 8:30 pm on October 26.
According to Tina’s account, on that fateful night, she had sent Thank-God, her uncle’s 10-year-old son on an errand to buy sugar for her, and was lying down in the room, waiting for the boy to return, when Mathew, thinking she was asleep, snuck up to her bed and tried to force himself on her.
Tina said she gave Mathew a kick on his private parts in a bid to stop him from defiling her.
