It was a gloomy Christmas for residents of Calabar Municipal Council in Cross River State as a man, identified as Ofem Eta, aged 35, allegedly died after a marathon sex with one of his girlfriends. Eta lived at 2, Orok Ita Street, Big Qua, before he met his death.
He worked with Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Calabar. An eyewitness told Daily Sun that the tragedy occurred during the Christmas period when the man came back from duty on Friday evening and without eating any food went into marathon sex with the girl. He died thereafter.
The eyewitness said, “when he came back from work, he told one of his town girls staying within the compound that he was hungry and that they should prepare something for him to eat. It was prepared for him, but when the girl got there, his door was shut and when she knocked, he told her to take the food back and bring it later. When the girl took the food to him later, his door was open and when she knocked again, there was no response.
But she went in and saw him lying naked on his bed,” she narrated. A neighbour, who does not want her name in print, said, “when the girl came she greeted us but we did not take particular interest in her and when she came out of his room, we did not say anything to her because we did not suspect anything unusual until his town girl brought him food,” a neighbour said about the girl who slept with the victim.
“People from his office came here and disturbed the whole street but they could not arrest anybody because the girl went away with his phone,” the neighbour said. Investigation by Daily Sun revealed that Eta hails from Mkapani in Yakkur Local Government Area of the state.
It was also learnt that some of the deceased’s colleagues at the operations unit of the NSCDC are said to be intensifying efforts to track down the lady even as no arrest had been made. When our reporter visited the Public Relations Officer, Mrs.Nkoyo Bassey at the NSCDC Office along Anantigha, Calabar South, she was not on seat But one of the officers, who didn’t want to be named, said “there is nothing the corps can do about it because it is even a shame to be talking about that; we are worried at such ugly death of one of us and he should just be forgotten.”
