I killed my wife and son because I overdosed on Indian Hemp — Evangelist

A 28-year-old man, Chukwuemeka Obijofa, has explained the reasons why he allegedly killed his wife and 4-year-old son in Ofufe Nza village in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The suspect who was arrested last month after attacking his wife and son with a shovel, said he committed the crime after taking an overdose of Indian hemp.

The suspect, who claimed to be an evangelist, was paraded alongside other suspects in Akwa on Saturday, said all he could remember was that he quarrelled with his wife. Obijofa said he only knew he had committed murder when he opened his eyes at the police station.

Obijofa, confessed he killed the wife over infidelity. He said the wife had confessed to him that the only son they had was not from him, adding that his anger grew the day he returned home to see her with two strange men.

"I became so angry and pained because I so much loved and trusted her. She tried to explain to me, but I went 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 a 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 returned 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 lost and I wished that situation could be reversed in my life,” he said.

He added that he was ordained an evangelist in 2012 and was warned by a pastor of the consequences when he began to fall out. He then proceeded to advise all to stay away from drugs saying, “It doesn’t kill a man but it invokes the evil spirit in a man’s life.”
