Inspector Oliver Akang has been taken into custody by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command in connection with the tragic killing of a farmer, Umoh Charlie, that occurred on September 9, 2023.

This information was revealed by the State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Odiko Ogbeche-Macdon, during an interview with Punch on Sunday.

Ogbeche-Macdon further mentioned that the State Criminal Investigation Department has taken charge of the case under the directive of the state Commissioner of Police, Olatoye Durosinmi.

“The officer involved is still in custody and the matter is being handled at the State CID by the Deputy Commissioner on the instructions of the Commissioner of Police who ordered a diligent investigation. The command never kept mute and is open to addressing any pending issue,” he said.

Love Knows No Age: Breaking Down the Taboo of Younger Men Dating Older Women in Nigeria



As I explore Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage, I’m struck by the harmful biases that exist.

One example is the stigma against older women dating younger men – a double standard that restricts women’s choices and reinforces harmful gender stereotypes.

In Nigeria, a woman’s value is often tied to her age, with younger women being prized for their beauty and fertility.

what about older women who desire love and companionship? Why are they shamed for their relationships, forced to hide their love due to societal pressure?

The double standard is clear. Older men marrying younger women is widely accepted, even celebrated, while older women in relationships with younger men face judgment and discrimination.

This issue affects men too, who are trapped by societal norms, forced to conform to traditional gender roles and expectations.

It’s time to challenge these outdated norms and embrace love in all its forms by promoting gender equality and inclusivity.

Let’s look to inspiring examples of older women who have defied societal norms and found love with younger men. Women like Gabrielle Union, who has spoken publicly about her relationship with her husband, Dwyane, who is several years younger than her or women like Viola Davis, who has embraced her love for her husband, Julius Tennon, despite their significant age difference.

These women are trailblazers, paving the way for a new generation of Nigerians who refuse to be bound by societal norms.

They show us that love knows no age, no gender, and no boundaries. It’s time for us to follow their lead and create a society that truly celebrates love in all its forms.

Research has shown that relationships with significant age gaps can be just as fulfilling and long-lasting as those with smaller age gaps. In fact, some studies suggest that older women in relationships with younger men may experience increased happiness and satisfaction due to the younger partner’s energy and enthusiasm.

By letting go of societal constraints and embracing our true desires, we can experience increased self-esteem, confidence, and overall life satisfaction.

we can create a society where everyone can love freely, without fear of judgment or rejection.
