At about 8a.m yesterday, a vulcaniser identified as Nkere Uta cold-bloodly murdered his wife, Bella, with a matchet in Mbiabam community, Uyo.
No one knows what actually caused the arguments that eventually led to the inhumane murdering of his wife, who had 5 children for him.
One of their neighbors, Madam Eno, wondered why a man would kill his wife in such a manner, saying in an emotion-laden voice that the village has never witnessed such a gruesome killing, as she described the deceased as very caring, industrious and peace-loving.
According to the residents of Mbiabam community, Bella is known to be a hard-working petty trader, very courteous and loved by the villagers.
Akwa Ibom State Police Public Relations Officer, Odiko MacDon, who confirmed the incident, said the suspect has been arrested and was cooling his heels at the Itam Division of the Nigeria Police Force. They assured the villagers that the suspect would be prosecuted at the end of the investigation for his inhumane act.
