Police officers in Akwa Ibom have arrested a 30 year-old man Joseph Ibanga for strangling his daughter to death in the stream. The man who was paraded earlier today by the state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, ASP Cordelia Nwawe before news men gave reasons for killing his four year-old daughter Gloria Ibanga.
In his confession, Ibanga said he carried out the act after eating a meal prepared by his mother.
“I stay in Port Harcourt, I came to the village that day; I don’t really know what happened, I started quarreling with my mother.
“Suddenly, something just entered into me and urged me to kill my daughter who was fast asleep. About 4a.m., A voice spoke to me and I carried her to the village stream and strangled her.
“I still cannot understand why I committed that crime as my eyes became clear after my daughter had died. I cannot say how it happened. It was after I had killed her that my eyes became clear and I began to understand that I had committed a grievous offence.
“As I got home, my mother asked me the whereabouts of the girl and when I could not explain, she raised an alarm and alerted the neighbourhood.
“The police was invited to arrest me. I do not know what got into me. I regret everything,” he begged.Share on Facebook
