Must read

The sleepy Yonen, Ugep community in Yakurr Local Government Area of Cross River State was on Tuesday thrown into confusion as Police operatives took a suspected mentally impaired woman into custody after allegedly butchered her barely one-year-old child or death.

There are suspicions that the mother of two could be suffering from Schizophrenia (Mental Disorder).

The suspect identified simply as Blessing Eno told security men that a spirit instructed her to carry out the heinous act on her biological child.

Reports said she took out a matchet and cut off the head of the baby, claiming that the child was disturbing her and a spirit instructed her to slaughter the boy.

An eyewitness who pleaded anonymity said that it was her eight-year-old son who stumbled on the gory sight of his headless brother who raised the alarm that attracted neighbours to the scene of the crime.

Police operatives responded swiftly to the distress call and prevented the angry mob from lynching her.

Reacting to the incident, the Obol Lopon of Ugep and Paramount Ruler of Yakurr LGA, HRM. Obol Ofem Ubana Eteng said he received the report with shock.

The Monarch, however, assured the people that he was certain that the police will handle the matter professionally to a logical conclusion.

He said: “I had to immediately convene a meeting with my subjects because even though what happened has desecrated the land, I had to ensure that further bloodshed was averted.
