A 41-year-old woman, Douglas Ajemine, Mother of Four, who killed her 40-year-old husband, Inedugoba Tyger, confessed to killing her husband and burying his corpse.
“I met my husband, Inedugoba Charles Tyger, in December 2014, and we got married the following year. My husband had two children before I married him and he pleaded that he needed me to help him take care of his children. He told me that his two children were out of school because there was no woman to look after them and he was equally not residing in Port Harcourt.
“I accepted, and I moved into his house and I started taking care of his children. My husband worked with Elf Oil and Gas and he had a court case with his company and at a point, he couldn’t pay his house rent because it was increased by his landlord. By January 2016, he was sacked from his job and we relocated to our village in Buguma and his children were all staying in my house.
“In April 2016, my husband got some money from his former company and went to my family and paid my bride price. We then relocated to his family house and since he had no job, he became so aggressive and abusive.
“He was shouting when he shouldn’t and he would hit me when he did not need it. I then advised him to look for a job and he went into illegal oil bunkering and was also looking for a white-collar job. We later moved out of his family house and relocated to Port Harcourt.
“I have a store in the community and he was not appreciating all that we were doing for him and by December 31, 2017 he decided to go to party with some friends and he refused to go to the house to go and pray and he started beating me. He even stopped me from coming to Port Harcourt to meet him. Last April, my son and his daughter sat for university matriculation examination and my son passed but his daughter failed and we agreed to buy a pre-degree form but he stopped responding to our demands.
“I took his daughter to the Port Harcourt house to see him and we discovered that a woman was living with him. I took the girl’s clothes to his family and my husband came to remove his clothes while the girl (her husband’s girlfriend) burnt all my clothes in my husband’s house. Later, he started coming to the house to carry things to sell and he would beat me up.
“I later moved out of that house in Abalama and moved to Port Harcourt and he consulted a native doctor to give him charms to kill me. He didn’t know where I was staying but he called asking for a metal ladder that was in my care in January 2019. And when he came, he wanted to have sex with me at the passage in the house at Abalama but I had met one Kingsley at Egbelu area of Port Harcourt, where I rented an apartment and I told him that I was new and my husband could come and harass me.
“Kingsley promised to assist me. On the day he came to collect the ladder he wanted to have sex with me and I refused and he tore my cloths. Fortunately, I ran out and called Kingsley crying on the phone and he came and started beating my husband and he was crying.
“When I couldn’t bear it, I went outside and when I came in I asked about my husband and they told me that he was dead and warned me that if I told anyone, they will kill me and my children.
“They said if I let anyone know that they were the people that killed my husband they would kill me. They took my husband to Sandfiled close to our house and buried him. I didn’t follow them to the exact spot where my husband was buried.’’
Kingsley Nnaa Confesses;
“Ajemine paid me and my friend the sum of ₦100,000 to kill her husband and I also had sex with her severally.
“In December 2018, I met a woman known as Ajemina, at Egbelu Odara Junction in Ogbogoro town and I was with one of my friends known as Sunny and the woman told us that her husband was maltreating her.
“I told her whenever the man called that she should call us or she should shout for people in the community to come out. Later on, she called again and said that she wanted us to beat the man. I asked her how we were going to see the man and beat him and she said that the man used to come to her house in Ogbogoro and he also used to come to her own house in Abalama to beat her.
“In January 2019, she gave us ₦50,000 and said she would call us whenever the man was with her. On January 26, she called again in the afternoon and she said that the man was coming and we should come and beat the man. When we got there we met the woman and her husband naked and it was like they had just finished making love.
“The room was dark and the woman flashed a touch at us and we found the man in bed and Sunny (his partner) wrapped the man’s face with a wrapper and a pillow, then I started beating the man and he woke up and started struggling and he was shouting and the man removed what Sunny tied on his face and the man saw Sunny and recognized him and they started speaking their Kalabari language.
“I didn’t know what they were talking about, but Sunny said we should kill the man since he had seen his face and I held the man and Sunny strangled the man.
“We called the woman who was outside when this happened and told her that the man was dead and she told us that she didn’t tell us to kill the man but she went and brought a shovel for us and showed us a space where we should bury the man.
“The next day which was Sunday the woman called us again and gave us ₦30,000 and by evening of that day she called me and said she wanted me to make love to her and when I met her in a hotel we made love for two hours.
“One week later, we met again in that same hotel in Egelu Town in Ogbogoru community and we made love again. We also made love for the third time, but I stopped responding to her calls because she wanted to turn me to her husband.
“Since that day I killed that man I have not been myself. I have gone to church to pray for forgiveness and now they have arrested me. I believe God has forgiven me.”
