Janet Ekpe, 33, has confessed poisoning her husband to death for allegedly dating her best friend in Zumbagwe, a remote community in Karu Local Government Area, Nasarawa State.
Mrs. Ekpe who got married to Sunday Ekpe (victim), eight years ago also confessed that she watched him die slowly and painfully after taking the poisonous substance she prepared.
Besides allegedly dating her beat friend, Janet also accused her husband of starving her of sex while satisfying her friend with the same.
In her confessional statement, She said: “When we got married eight years ago, sex seemed to be the only thing on my husband’s mind. He was always in the mood.
“We would make love 3-4 times before morning, and when he woke up, he would be ready to continue. There were days he skipped work and we would spend the whole day making love. We had sex in the bathroom, in the kitchen and everywhere it caught our fancy in the house.
“Whenever we shared stories of our exploits in bed, my friends felt I had the best man and jokingly begged me to allow them to have my husband just for a day because their husbands could not satisfy them in bed.
“While we were having sex on a regular basis before, it came down to 2 times in a week and later became so bad that we could stay for 3 or 4 months without making love.
“The worst was the day I saw a text message from Helen in my husband’s phone, thanking him for giving her the best sexual satisfaction ever in her life previous day. I was devastated. I felt sick and angry. I was hurt that my own husband could do this to me.
“I mixed a deadly, colourless, tasteless and odourless substance in his meal and drinking water which destroyed his intestines immediately.
“He cried and truggled uncontrollably after taking the meal. He gave up after an hour and I used a sharp blade and knife to chop off his penis, place it on his chest as evidence of what killed him.
“If your penis is the one that is giving you the audacity to have feelings for my best friend and refusing to listen to the advice of your parents and even your pastor, it is better to cut it off.
“Mr Sunday (Ekpe), a cheating, filthy, lying bastard, ought to die for me to live. I deserve to live because I am human and have blood flowing in my veins.
“These foolish men, you give them everything, yet they choose to fool around and play with your intelligence. I had monitored him closely and tolerated him for long and his end has come,” the widow added.
Meanwhile, Mr Adakole Onoja, an uncle of Ekpe, told our correspondent that the deceased man was not Godly in his affairs with Hellen.
“When his wife reported the matter to me, I invited him to my house and told him the implications of his actions. You cannot completely starve your young wife of sex and resort to dating her best friend.
“Many people, including his parents in the village, his pastor and his close friends, interfered in the issue but he turned a deaf ear to them.
“Maybe that was how he was destined to end his life. His wife’s action may not be right, but she is a human being too.”
All the efforts made by our correspondent to reach Helen on the phone yielded no result as her phone was repeatedly said to have been switched off.
Visits made to her hairdressing salon also yielded no fruit as the salon was locked up.
