The Cross River State Police Command of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has confirmed the recovery of the body of a Professor of Political Science with the University of Calabar (UNICAL), Professor Felix Akpan, bearing multiple stab wounds.

Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the State Command, Superintendent of Police Irene Ugbo, said that the late don’s corpse was discovered allegedly on Sunday with multiple stab wounds in his apartment at Plot 181, Duke Town Close, State Housing in Calabar, the capital of Cross River State.

Ugbo said: “We have a suspect in custody who claims to be a friend to the deceased. He said he does not know what happened to him or who stabbed him to death.

“Our crack team of detectives have already swung into action, we will soon get to the root of the matter by unraveling who the killer is.”

Meanwhile, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports, quoting a source who pleaded anonymity, that the deceased, a former Dean of Students Affairs in UNICAL, allegedly had a guest on Saturday but left very early on Sunday to Akampka before his remains were found.

“He had a male guest who came visiting at the weekend, but the person left very early on Sunday at about 5:00 AM.

“A lady, who stays in the compound, said that she heard a loud scream same day the visitor who has now been confirmed to be a friend left his apartment and alerted people in the neighborhood about the noise.

“Perhaps, he forgot something that made him come back to the victim’s house, where he was apprehended and taken to Prof’s apartment where we saw the lifeless body of Prof. Akpan with multiple stab wounds,” he said.
