At the resumed hearing on Wednesday, the prosecutor called Bamidele, a police veteran, as the state’s final witness. Bamidele told the court that as the head of a team that investigated the killing, he personally recorded the defendant’s statement, NAN reports. He said that Udeme wrote a detailed confessional statement during an interactive session with her in protective custody in the police hospital. According to him, the defendant was recuperating from what doctors described as “superficial and self-inflicted wounds,” when she made her statement. He said the defendant spoke freely after identifying herself as a lawyer. Bamidele said:
“While she (Udeme) was writing her statement, it was an interactive session. I put questions to her, she would explain it to me and put it down in writing. “She stated in her statement that she was married to the late Symphorosa and that they were having marital issues. “She stated that the deceased was having extra-marital affairs and whenever she raised the issue with him, his responses were not satisfactory, he appeared nonchalant. “She said that on May 2, 2018, she was preparing to travel to United Kingdom when she checked the bedside locker for her marriage certificate. When she could not find it, she went to the deceased where he lay on the bed and asked him about it but there was no response, the response given was not okay. “She had a discussion with him and there was hot exchange of words, which made her to go to the kitchen and get a frying pan and knife. “When she returned to where the deceased lay, she hit him on the head with the frying pan and said ‘Tell me, what is in your mind that you are withholding. “She stated that the deceased called his mother to report her conduct. She continued to hit the deceased on the head again and again. Finally, she confirmed that she used the knife to stab the deceased in his abdomen. “She also said while the deceased was lying on his back, she was still angry. She sat beside him, looking at his intestines coming out of the deceased and said: ‘If this your penis is the one that is giving you license to have the feeling of another person, it’s better we cut it off,’ she proceeded to do so with the same knife she used in stabbing him and hanged a piece of the penis in his right hand”.
