In an interview with newsmen at the police headquarters in Uyo, Uduak said he regretted killing the lady.

Below are excerpts of questions he answered from journalists.

Q: Tell us what happened that day?

What happened was that she came for a supposed job interview which I used reverse psychology on her.

I asked her if she can work in a farm where hard drugs are kept as a secretary and she said that she can, she is ready to do the job.

So when she came I revealed to her that this farm doesn’t exist and there is no farm like that. It was just a hoax.

I told her before she leaves I will like to have sex with her and she agreed. She however, gave a condition that I should use a condom, which I agreed.

When I removed the condom, she became furious and took the nearby stabilizer to hit me on my head and my left finger and tried to reach for the door.

So while I was bleeding, in a bid to stop her I used the stabilizer to hit her and when I hit her she fell and started bleeding, after which she died.

Q: How many people have you done this for?

I have done it to about six victims before.

Q: What about the NYSC shoe in your house?

The NYSC shoe was the shoe my mother used when she wants to farm. It is not like a corper came or something.

Q: How Did your father help you?

He did not help me.

Q: Who assisted you to bury her

Nobody assisted me.

Q: Did you hypnotize her with any substance?


Q: Who owns the exercise book in the house

He is my cousin.

Q: How did he help in this whole thing?

He didn’t help me.

Q: You called him, what was the subject of your conversation?

That was when I was coming back from Calabar. Initially, I went to Calabar and while I was coming back to submit myself to the police.

My conversation with him was very simple I asked him for the number of the DPO so I called the DPO, I met with them and they put me in their vehicle.

Q: Why not report to the police, why did you bury her?

I was very scared. I believe the whole scenario will be misunderstood.

Q: Initially, what was your motive?

I used reverse psychology on her because I have had very bad experiences with runs girls and prostitutes. So I used reverse psychology on her, ask her if she can work in a farm where hard drugs are kept.

She even told me she takes marijuana and cocaine, so I felt it was the best way to revenge on prostitutes and runs girls.

Q: How do you feel about what you have done?

I’m not happy about it but I believe the commissioner of Police with his men and they have assured Nigerians and the world that justice would take its course.

Q: Was your father around when it happened?

No, he wasn’t around.

Yes, I am.
