The Police Command  in Akwa Ibom State on Thursday disclosed the arrest of a man, Sunday Etukudo, for killing his daughter, Ofonmbuk Sunday, 20 years, at Omum Unyiam community in Etim Ekpo Local Government Area.

The Police Public Relations Officer of the Akwa Ibom State Command, Odiko Macdon, in a statement on Thursday, indicated that the man claimed that the deceased daughter held his manhood during a fight, forcing him to use a stick to hit her on the head and she collapsed.

The man, thereafter,  buried the daughter in his family compound at Omum Unyiam.  The police have, however, exhumed the corpse, preserving it for autopsy.

The PPRO highlighted: “Based on credible information, on 9th October 2022, at about 1910hrs, one Ime Sunday Etukudo of Omum Unyiam village in Etim Ekpo Local Government Area, unlawfully killed and buried his daughter, one Ofonmbuk Ime Sunday, aged 20yrs, at the family compound at Omum Unyiam village.

“The suspect alleged that there was a family misunderstanding, which led to a fight, and that the victim held his manhood, that he, in turn, used a stick to hit her on the head, which led to her death, and that he decided to bury her in a shallow grave to cover his track.”

In another development, the police had raided a kidnappers’ den and arrested a notorious robbery/kidnapping kingpin, Emediong Etuk, popularly known as Mopol, in Ukanafun Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom State.

The PPRO noted that before he died,  the suspect confessed to being responsible for the many kidnappings and robberies, including the one of Ekom Ime Akpan on October 13.

According to the PPRO, “On 29th September 2022 at about 1400hrs, one Edet Uyo Ntung ‘m’ was arrested for the murder of one Emem Monday Uyo ‘m’, both of Afaha Ediene village in Ikono Local Government Area.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that there was a lingering family feud. The suspect, who is the uncle and family head of the deceased, invited him to his residence on the pretext of addressing the problem. Rather than doing so, he brought out his machete and cut his face, hand, neck, and other parts of his body, leading to his instant death.”

The Akwa State Commissioner of Police, Olatoye Durosinmi, has ordered a discrete investigation of the cases, noting that suspects would soon be charged in court.

The CP warned residents against self-help, urging them to report a case of misunderstanding to the police.
