Man accused of killing pregnant lover

From  PUNCH
The family of a lady, Gloria Akpan, has accused their daughter’s lover, Ita Eyo, of killing her in his residence in Ayobo area of Ogun State.
Gloria and Eyo both from Akwa Ibom State had been cohabiting since March 2012 before the sad incident occurred on November 3. The lady was six-month pregnant before she died.
A family source, who craved anonymity, said when he spoke to Gloria on Friday, a day before her death, she told him that all was well, adding that it was shocking to learn that she had died the next day.
The source said, “Without seeing any member of the family, that same Saturday, they hurriedly buried her.

“This is suspicious. The information we got was that she was strangled as she bled through her nose and mouth.”

Father of the deceased, Mr. Edet Akpan, 66, a retiree of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, corroborated the family source, insisting that his child was murdered.
Akpan told PUNCH Metro amid sobs, that Eyo, had in March this year asked for his daughter’s hand in marriage.

He said it was a transport operator, simply called Akintunde that brought Eyo to their home at NDLEA Compound at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.
Expectedly, Akpan said during the meeting, he told Eyo to come with his people when they were ready.

Akpan said, “After that meeting, I travelled to my country home in Akwa Ibom. Since I have retired, I have been alternating between home and Lagos.

“While I was still in my hometown, my wife, Gloria’s stepmother, phoned me. She said my daughter had moved out of the house. I exclaimed, ‘move to where?’ She said she had gone to Eyo’s house.
“She also said it was Eyo’s friend, Akintunde that came to take her to the place.

“The news jolted me and I had to rush back to Lagos. When I came back, I set out to search for her whereabouts but my effort was unsuccessful as I neither knew the address of Akintunde nor Eyo’s.”

He said he later got Akintunde on the phone.

Akpan said when he called Akintunde, Eyo and Gloria were with him.
He said, “When I got Akintunde on the phone, he handed the phone over to Eyo. After quarrelling with Eyo, I asked him to pass the phone to Gloria and he did.

“Gloria told me she was well and assured me that she would come home soon. I even asked of my grandson whom she took along with her and she said he was okay.”
Akpan lamented that instead of his daughter coming back home, the news he got the following day was that she had died.

He said, “On Saturday, Akintunde and a woman, came to inform me that my daughter had died. I was confused. I took them to my elder brother’s house. My elder brother asked them to deposit her corpse in the mortuary for further action.

“The same day, I asked my son to go to Eyo’s house. My son told me that they had buried my daughter. This was done without the knowledge of any member of the family. We find the development curious. This is somebody he was not married to. That is why we believe my daughter was murdered for some sinister purposes.”

He said another reason he suspected Eyo was culpable in his daughter’s death was the account of an eyewitness, Gloria’s son, who was living with them.

Akpan said his grandson, who Gloria had for another man, told him that on the fateful day, Eyo and his mother had a disagreement resulting in Eyo pulling something out of the bed and hitting her several times before she died.

He said he headed for a nearby police station in Ikeja, Lagos where they detailed three policemen to arrest Akintunde.

He said with the aid of the policemen, Akintunde took them to Eyo’s house in Ayobo, Ogun State.
He said when they got to Ayobo, it was discovered that that the part where Eyo lives is within the jurisdiction of Ogun State Police Command.
From there, he went to Itele Police Station in Ota, Ogun State where some policemen were detailed to arrest Eyo.

He said Eyo was currently being held at Itele Police Station.

He appealed to the relevant authorities to bring the killer of his daughter to justice.
A police source at Itele Police Division said the Commissioner of Police, Ogun Command, had directed that the matter be taken to the state Criminal Investigation Department.

The source, who did not want his name mentioned, said the Divisional Crime Officer confirmed that the suspect was still being detained.

However, he said the father of the deceased had refused to show up, stressing that the suspect claimed he (Akpan) consented to the burial of his daughter.

“The matter is a murder case; the suspect is still being detained. The Commissioner of Police has directed that the matter be taken to the SCID, Abeokuta,” the source said.

How sad!! The whole situation surrounding this lady's death looks really suspicious, I just hope its not true that he killed her. Sometimes you think you know someone but in totality you don't really do, how can you fathom that a man who you are pregnant for can use his own hands and kill you?? R.I.P
PS: I wanna digress a little from the story, did anyone notice that pic? She looks like a man putting on a dress and a wig. Looking very manly!

What a pathetic story. Rest in peace Gloria. Police will surely do their work. Why was he quick to bury her and the little boy claim could serve as a sign in lighten up the matter. The lady shouldn't have take the decision to be living with the guy even though pregnant. Is like that it mean't. That's what my people call iyawo sara. That's a lesson for we all.

Lemme guess, you're Yoruba. Ever so quick to attack Igbos. Too stupid to realise that there are so many tribes in Nigeria. To your hollow air head, any one who is not Yoruba is Igbo. You're infinitely stupid, your education is a complete waste and it would do you a world of good to begin over from the scratch. Go back to nursery school. Omo ale jati jati.

Yorubas and their foolishness. A tragedy happened and the first thing u'll look for is the person's tribe-the wrong tribe for that matter. The girl is from my tribe...she's not Igbo. However, most of the men that have been killing or cheating on their girlfriends/wives are Yoruba.We've gotten so used to it we don't talk about it anymore.Akwaibom people are very peace loving people. This occurence is rare and was probably influenced by the Yoruba man who took the poor girl to Lagos and brought her corpse back.

Since u can't comprehend a simple story like this, it's about two persons from Akwa Ibom state. Akwa Ibom state, with its capital in Uyo, is a prominent oil-rich state in the South-south zone mostly inhabited by the Ibibios, the Annangs and other minorities. The Ibos occupy the South-east zone of Nigeria. With this piece of info and from the names of these two people u should be able to figure out yourself their tribe. Don't be so daft!

As angry as I am, I will try to make my point succinctly and move on...

Who are you to judge this lady?
FACT #1 - Everybody dies, (no matter how religious you are, believe me once it is time, you will die. You will have to leave this world at some point. The hows and when are not up to you. Take my word for it.

Fact #2 - How many people have only ever had sex with their spouse? How many 'women of virtue' DID NOT have any sexual relations with their husband before they got married? Note I said married, I did not say engaged. How many single women of the deceased age are virgins? Has all your sexual activity been rape? The deceased had a son....should I bother asking how many women have had abortions? Should I ask how many who would if they found themselves in that situation? Do you wonder why the rate of abortions will not fall despite having made a nasty comment about a single mother who chose to have her baby? If you are a guy making distasteful comments about the deceased, please answer this? What moral authority do you have to judge this lady? Are you a virgin? Do male virgins past a certain age even exist anymore? Are you really in a position to judge her???

FACT #3- Did you know this lady? Did you in fact live her life? Do you know what opportunities she had in life? Do you know if she has suffered any form of abuse? Do you know if she had a happy childhood? Can you tell me what influenced all her life decisions? Have you never put a foot wrong in your entire life???

FACT#4 - Husbands (legal, ring-wearing ones) can and do batter their equally legally married wives.., Some kill too! Do you still violence and murder is exclusively found amongst co-habiting couples???

Close your eyes and just for a second imagine that everyone else in the world, (your family and complete strangers) can see all you have done that you try so hard to hide. I didn't say all the good stuff you've done in Church and how you helped some people the other day. I mean all the things you desperately keep under wraps. Now can you still judge Gloria?

Cathy is a Yoruba girl that used an English name to hide her identity.Yorubas spread hate everywhere as if they are the only tribe in Naija.

Sepiribo said...

Yoruba folks, can u guys try and get some education? Someone bearing an English name does not automatically make her Ibo. In Rivers state,more than half of the population bear English names and they are not Ibos.Rivers state has tribes like Khana, Kalabari, Ikwerre etc Pls do a little research before u guys rant ur ignorance.A poor girl died and u're looking for an Ibo person to blame. Ibos could be annoying though but ur hatred for them might make u Yorubas develope ulcers if care is not taken. Learn a little more about ur geography.If someone's not from ur Yoruba tribe,it does not automatically make them Ibo. Nigeria has 250+ tribes and u cn't wipe them away!
