University Don found dead with multiple stab wounds

The Cross River State Police Command has confirmed the recovery of the body of a Professor of Political Science with the University of Calabar, Prof. Felix Akpan.

The Command’s Spokesperson, SP Irene Ugbo, confirmed the incident in a statement she issued on Monday.

She said the body was discovered on Sunday with multiple stab wounds in his apartment at Plot 181, Duke Town Close, State Housing in Calabar.

Ugbo said that arrests have been made while the matter is still under investigation.

She said: “We have a suspect in custody who claims to be a friend to the deceased (Prof. Akpan).

“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, a source who pleaded anonymity, said the deceased, a former Dean of Students Affairs in UNICAL, had a guest on Saturday, but left very early on Sunday to Akampka before his remains was found.

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

“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 neighbourhood about the noise.

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