SaharaReporters has uncovered how a Police Officer currently serving with t Mr Clement Asuquo Etim, and two others after he was caught in bed with the wife of Mr Etim in Uyo, the state capital.
It was gathered that CSP Umeh had been having an amorous affair with Mrs Lawrentia Asuquo, Etim’s wife for a long time before he was finally caught at about 7:00pm on April 27, 2020, at their home at Aba Ukpo Estate, which is not too far from where the Akwa Ibom State Police Command in Uyo is located.
Confirming his ordeal to SaharaReporters, Etim said that the randy senior police officer had been having sexual affair with his wife for a long time and that he has been hoping for a day that he will catch them.
He said, “Whenever I travel to Calabar where I do my business, I usually receive reports that my wife invites her lover, CSP Umeh, to our matrimonial home to spend the night.
“They were having a sexual affair in my house not minding the presence of my home help, a boy of 15 years old.”
According to Etim, luck, however, ran out on the police officer and his wife when he got a tip-off that CSP Umeh was in his house again to spend the night on April 27.
Following that information, Etim decided to return to Uyo.
He said, “On getting home in the evening last Monday, I caught the CSP with my wife enjoying themselves on the matrimonial bed.”
Etim said he was provoked on seeing CSP Umeh in bed with his wife and decided to confront him along with his cousin that came with him from Calabar as a witness.
Following the confrontation, the policeman ran out of Etim’s house with his wife and abandoned his SUV.
About two hours later, heavily armed officers from the Special Anti-Robbery Squad stormed his house with his adulterous wife and arrested him, his cousin, Mr Patrick Okon Edet, and his home help, Christopher Bassey.
They were taken to the Akwa Ibom State Police Command.
On getting to the police command, Etim said that the police tortured him and falsely accused him, his cousin and home help of “assaulting” CSP Umeh and “stealing his mobile phones”.
Etim was detained illegally from April 27 to 30th when he was temporarily released to go and search for the keys of the SUV belonging to CSP Umeh which was abandoned at his house.
However, the cousin and home help were detained in police custody from April 27 April to May 4 when they were arraigned before a Chief Magistrate Court in Uyo on trumped-up charges of assault and stealing.
Etim said that when he was released, he decided to go to the hospital for medical checks as blood kept coming out from one side of his ear as a result of torture by the Officer-in-Charge of General Investigation, a Superintendent of Police named Ekene Nwosu, and other policemen at the Akwa Ibom State Police Command.
He said that SP Ekene used a plank to hit his ear and also assaulted his home help and kept shouting at them for fighting with Umeh.
Surprisingly, on getting to his house after he was released, Etim met his three-bedroom flat apartment empty.
He said his neighbours and estate management told him that his wife came with strangers and moved out all his properties and household items and relocated to an unknown location.
“When she was confronted by people in the estate, a certain SP Ekene instructed the estate management to allow my wife to leave the estate with all my properties or face the consequences,” he said.
According to the charge sheet obtained by our correspondent, the three men were accused of hitting the police officer with a bottle.
