By Temitope Adedeji, Adedeji

A 25-year-old man, Benedict Owalun  has been arrested by the police detectives in Ondo State for murdering his colleague, Ekong.

Ekong was beheaded during a fight inside an Indian hemp plantation in the state.

The duo was said to be working with other boys on the plantation located at Ipele in Owo Local Government Area of the state when the incident happened.

Owalun, an indigene of  Cross Rivers State said  that he had suspected the deceased to be behind his predicament over the years

In his confession, he said the  deceased  had threatened to deal with him spiritually which he later noticed

Owalum said he had noticed that his manhood was no longer functioning and took the action because Ekong had threatened to kill him.

While confessing  of the crime, Owalum said: “Five of us used to work on a farm in Ipele, where we cultivate Indian hemp for our boss called Mr Okadigbo.

“We have been working there for about six months. So, on the last day when we’re about to leave the farm, there’s one of us called Felix and another known as Ekong who I have been suspecting of attacking me spiritually.

“Both of them had been telling me that they would have killed me since if they have their way. I reported the issue to Mr Okadigbo but he failed to intervene.

“Later I began to have health issues as I could no longer urinate due to the spiritual attack by the boys. After a while, I confronted Ekong over the development but he threatened me with a cutlass and I took my own cutlass as well and we immediately engaged in a brawl.

“During the fight, he fell and I immediately cut off his head and the other boys ran away. I took the head away to the hut and later, I saw policemen who came to arrest me.”
