A 28 year old man, Chukwuemeka Obijofa of Ofufe Nza village in Ekwusigo local government area of Anambra State who killed his wife and son with a shovel said he took the action after taking overdose of Indian hemp.
Obijofa was reported to have ran amok and killed his wife and son last week Tuesday in Anambra’ state.
The suspect who spoke to journalists in Awka, when he was paraded by the image maker of Anambra’ state police command, CSP Haruna Mohammed, on Saturday, along side other suspects said that he never knew what came over him after taken Indian when he had quarrel with the wife .
He said that he only knew about his killing of his wife and son when he opened his eyes at the police station.
“When I came back to the house to give my wife money to buy some food items because I did not drop enough money for them when I was going out in the morning. When I came back in the afternoon I saw my wife with two men who were not known to me. I became so angry and pained because I loved and trusted her so much. She tried to explain to me, but I went to somewhere to take my Indian hemp to calm myself down . But after taking some overdose, surprisingly, I found out that I became worse and lost my senses and control. I could not control myself any longer.
“I believed that an extraordinary spirit entered me and I could not help it. I could not believe that I did that to a woman I loved so much . I believed she was the only thing I had in life. I only came back to my senses when I opened my eye in the police station.
“I believed that what killed my wife and son was the demon inside me and not me. Honestly, I felt totally lost and I feel that the situation could be reversed in my life” he said.
According to him, they have been married for five years after six years of dating themselves.
“I know I committed a crime, which I did not do with my clear eyes. I was ordained Evangelist in 2012, then I was doing well but when I begin to fall out of grace, my pastor told me about the consequences. He told me that time was coming when I will suffer for my evil action and that God does not want me to suffer. I did believe him until now” he said.
He called on everybody who wants to live a good life to desist from taking hard drugs and Indian hemp because they can only destroy.
“Let stay away from drugs and Indian hemp, it is bad. It doesn’t kill a man but it invokes evil spirit in a man’s life. Whenever, you take it, you will know that evil spirit has been introduced into your system, which does not belong to you as a person . Please let everybody stay away from drugs. I want to go back to my God, if I have the second chance,” he said.
