Lecturer beating to death by wife and siblings. Guess why?
Crazy things are happening in the country and sometimes it seems it is getting crazier. When Godwin Abuul got married to his wife he never knew the lady he said I do to would conspire to kill him.
Godwin Abuul was a lecturer in the Department of Theatre Art, College of Education, Benue State. He went missing for several weeks after he said he was travelling to Katsina. During a search to determine the where about of Mr Godwin, his clothes was found with a man. After a long interrogation the beans was spilled. He confessed that the lecturer was beating to death by his wife’s siblings for having extramarital affairs.
Read full details below:
Goddy used to lecture at the College of Education in Oju. He travels weekly from here in Gboko to Oju to lecture after which he returns to Gboko to spend his weekend with his wife and two children.
Unfortunately, two weeks ago he returned from Oju and said he was traveling to Katsina/Ala on a private visit, that was the last we heard of him.
His disappearance was reported to the Police who since then have been combing the entire state in search of his whereabouts.
Luckily, just two days ago, the cloth he wore the last day anybody saw him was found with a young man who was immediately arrested by the Police in Gboko.
Upon interrogation the young man confessed to the Police how the missing lecturer was allegedly killed by his wife in connivance with her siblings.
His confession triggered the arrest of several persons including the wife of the deceased and mother of his two children and all those mentioned in the saga, by the Police in Gboko, though the matter has been transferred to the Command Headquarters in Makurdi for further investigations.
Already his wife has confessed all she knew about the matter to the Police. We learned that she alleged that her brothers beat her husband up because he was involved in extra marital affairs, but not with the intention to kill him.
After killing him, they allegedly dumped his body in River Katsina/Ala and also went ahead to sell his Honda car to an innocent buyer for the sum of N650,000 and of that sum, the wife of the murdered lecturer was given the sum of N400,000 as her share of the proceed.
As I speak with you, the Police and local divers are still combing River Katsina/Ala to locate his remains but we very much doubt if his remains would be seen because the fishes must have feasted on it.
ASP Moses Yamu, the PRO for Benue State Police confirmed the incident said:
Yes I know of the matter but I’m yet to get the full details of the matter from the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, because the suspects are yet to arrive Makurdi. At this moment I cannot confirm that the wife of the deceased was behind his murder until the details are made available to me.
