Uwaila Idehen, the 35-year-old man that shot his wife and two sons to death on Sunday at Ovbioge village in Ovia North- East Local Government Area of Edo State, was on Monday paraded before newsmen at the state police headquarters in Benin.
The suspect, who confessed to committing the crime, disclosed that he did not know what pushed him to open fire on his family.
He said, “I am a tipper driver. We are two in my family , my elder sister and me . I am 35 years old. My wife had three children for me , a girl and two boys . The girl is six years and the boys were three and two years old, respectively.
“I don’t know what came over me and I was not drunk . Due to the nature of my job , my wife always accused me of having affairs with other women , but it is not true.
“Anytime she saw me with my female customers , she would start an argument with me , but I always assured her that there was nothing like that and that my concern was how to take care of the three kids we had together.
“I always walked away whenever she provoked me ; but on Sunday, I didn’ t know what came over me . Instead of just leaving the house , I picked up my gun and shot through the door and the bullets pierced through the plywood door and hit my wife and the two boys . The girl narrowly escaped.”
