Horror! Akwa Ibom woman kills mother, dismembers body
Fear has gripped residents of Umoh Obot Street, off Nto Akpan Inyang in the Ikot-Ikpene Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State following the alleged gruesome murder of one Eka Ime by her daughter, Mary Imewe, on Friday.
It was gathered that the suspect murdered her mother and dismembered her before she was apprehended.
A source told our correspondent in Uyo on Sunday that angry youths of the community, who were irked by the bizarre manner in which Ime allegedly murdered her mother, compelled her to pack the body parts into a basin and walked round the community.
According to the source, who pleaded anonymity, when the police came to arrest Ime, she stated that she did not care about her arrest and detention.
“I don’t care if I am arrested and detained by the police,” the suspect was quoted to have said before being bundled into a waiting police van.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Odiko Macdon, who confirmed the incident, told our correspondent on Sunday that he was surprised that a daughter could commit such a dastardly act against her mother
He said no right-thinking person would slaughter their mother in such a gruesome manner, adding that the police would conduct a test to ascertain Ime’s state of mind before she would be charged.
Macdon stated, “The story is true; she (Ime) butchered her mum. We are suspecting that she is not of a sound mind, but we do not have any medical capacity yet to say so. Punch
