Ushie had invited his lover to spend the night at his apartment and is said to have killed the woman when she refused to allow him have sex with her.
Ushie, a cocoa farmer confessed to the crime before newsmen while being paraded at the weekend. He said his now deceased lover Nnenna never gave him the opportunity to have sex with her while alive, adding that he invited her to his house and killed her with knife before having sex with the corpse.
