Man Matchet girlfriend in Ikom (Cross River)


After giving his sweetheart money to get her hair done, the 30-year-old Cross River guy matched her for not coming to see him on Valentine’s Day. He claims that while under the influence of “combine,” he committed the heinous deed and was therefore unaware of it.

This was said on Thursday by Amba Ubung, a farmer from Okuni community in the Ikom local government area, who was being paraded by the police at the state command headquarters in Diamond Hill, Calabar, along with other criminal suspects.

Commissioner of Police Gyogon Grimah, who was presenting the suspect to the media, stated that on February 17 at approximately 1000 hours, a few community leaders from Okuni in the Ikom local government area reported to Ikom Area Command that a man named Amba Ubung “m,” who is thirty years old, gave his girlfriend, Blessing Onawu “f,” who is twenty-five years old, 7,000 Naira (N7,000) to plate her hair and come see him on February 14, 2024 (Valentine’s Day).

The commissioner stated, “The said lady did not show up after waiting patiently. Armed with a machete, the suspect Amba Ubung went to Blessing Onawu’s residence, attacked her, and intentionally slashed multiple places on her body with the intention of killing her. The victim’s mother attempted to free her from the bloodthirsty Amba, but he responded by giving her several degrees of machete slashes on her with the same weapon.

A squad of police officers responded quickly, arriving at the site and using the machete to apprehend the culprit. After the inquiry was completed, the suspect was moved to SCID for a covert investigation and thorough prosecution. The victims are being treated in several hospitals in the interim.

However, when interviewed by journalists, the suspect said “I didn’t know myself that day because I had taken ‘combine’. When I went to her place I wasn’t happy because of what she had done. When I asked her why she refused to show up she started laughing. I felt so bad and used the cutlass I was holding to injure her. When the mother came and hold me and we started dragging the cutlass; I didn’t know if in that process the knife cut her. I didn’t know myself.”
