Lawyer Kills Husband After He Discovers Their Houseboy Is Her Biological Son


Abasiesebanga Ikoiwak, 36, and five others have been charged with the murder of her 41-year-old husband, Barrister Godwin Ikoiwak.

Ikoiwak, a native of Eket Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom State, was said to have died a few days after telling his friend and former classmate, Barrister Sunny Anyanwu, over the phone that he was having problems with his wife due to adultery.

Anyanwu told the court that the deceased told him that he reported the situation to his wife’s family, who summoned him to a meeting in their family compound in Nung Udoe Itak, Ikono Local Government Area, but did not come home alive.

Anyanwu, the seventh prosecution witness in the case, also stated that the late Barrister informed him that his wife was having a sexual relationship with her former boss, a legal practitioner named C.I. Odoh.

He claimed that the deceased husband told him that his wife had worked as a housekeeper for a Catholic priest, Rev. Father Maurice Mbeke, and that the catholic priest impregnated her, and that they had a child named after her maternal grandpa, who is now 19 years old.

The late Barrister, according to the prosecution witness, had no idea that the boy who had been living with him in his residence for years was his wife’s son since the wife had informed him that the child was her younger brother.

He stated that the deceased told him that whenever his wife announced that she was pregnant, he did not look at her until after the kid was delivered and she presented it to him and said, “This is your child.”

The prosecution team, lead by Akwa Ibom State Director of Public Prosecutions, Barr. Joseph Umoren, presented the audio recordings, which were played in open court.

Barrister Ikoiwak worked as a state lawyer for the Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Justice until his death.
