The policep command in Cross River on Thursday paraded a 30-year-old man who allegedly macheted his lover for failing to show up in his house on the last Valentine’s Day.

The police alleged that Amber Ubung carried out the act when his lover, Blessing Onawu, 25, reneged on her promise to spend the Valentine night with him after collecting N7,000 from him to dress her hair.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr Gyogon Grimah, told newsmen in Calabar that the incident happened at Okuni in Ikom Local Government Area.

“After waiting and the said lady did not show up, the suspect, Ubung, armed himself with a machete, went to the house of Onawu, attacked and gave her several machete cuts all over her body with the intent to kill her.

“In an attempt by the victim’s mother to rescue her, he used the same machete to inflict injuries on her.

“A team of policemen were mobilised to the scene, and the suspect was arrested with the machete.

“The suspect was transferred to SCID for further investigation and will be charged to court as soon as investigation is concluded,” he said.

The commissioner also said that the victim and her mother were receiving treatment in different hospitals.
