Court Frees Corps Member Accused Of Killing Boyfriend And Says She Acted In Self Defense

 Chidinma Paschaline Odume, a 2021 Batch ‘A’ member of the National Youths Service Corps, Akwa Ibom State, who was standing trial over the gruesome murder of one Akwaowo Japheth 26, has been discharged by the State High Court sitting in Uyo, the state capital.







Ms Odume was discharged on Thursday, January 13, 2022, by Justice Bassey Nkanang after it was established that she acted in self-defense.

It could be recalled that Ms Odume was said to have killed Akwaowo in cold blood during an altercation between them on January 10, 2022, at the deceased’s Abak Road residence in Uyo.

However, police preliminary investigations, according to the Public Relations Officer, Odiko Macdon, revealed that the “deceased (Akwaowo) took the accused (Ms Odume) to his house and while in the house, Akwaowo Japhet in a bid to rape her, picked up a machete and attempted to kill her.

Odume said the accused dispossessed him of the knife and used same on him, which led to his death.”

It was gathered that the family of the deceased never showed up in the court at least once despite several calls to them to come for their son’s death.

It was further gathered that the deceased had several pending records of rape cases against him.

However, the Presiding judge, Justice Nkanang, in his ruling struck out the case and discharged the accused person following the Nolle Prosequi (formal notice of discontinuation of the prosecution without a conviction) entered by the Attorney General of the State, dated January 10, 2022.

The court noted that the action was pursuant to section 211 (1) (c) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Section 71 of the Criminal Code Procedure Law of Akwa Ibom.

    3. Anonymous at 22:56 Big Fat Olodo like you. It cannot be murder. It was not premeditated. It was self defence. Highest manslaughter. But the werey was a known rapist even his family rejected him in death. What fuckery are you talking about? The court did the right thing.

  3. Inasmuch as I really do not trust the justice system in Nigeria but if this guy really did have some pending rape charges against him then it's a no brainer that the lady did it in self defence

  5. Stella, when that guy died, the whole street celebrated, like they threw mad party. I heard he was a terror. He raped girls up and down. And the whole street and above were ready to defend the girl. So it is a well deserve justice. She is free to go. So happy for her

    2. Kidjo because even the devil get fans. Of course his fellow rapists would be there to attack her.

      His family didn't even show up in court, not one. What does that say about the dead rapist? He should rot in hell where he belongs.

    3. The only thing is says is the family was paid off! No judge will easily let you go when there's no evidence of you defending yourself.
      Nobody celebrated, the mob almost killed the girl. Please get your facts right.
      How strange it is that the family never showed up? Even a devil has family that will support him. They were paid off. Simple. Case settled out of court.

  11. Punch online: The incident occured on the 10th of January, 2021 along Abak Road, Uyo

    Not 2022 as reported above. It was last year, not this year.
