It was also gathered that Eyo, also known as Etteobong lives in a two-room apartment while Uduak and her two children lived in a separate apartment within the same compound.

A wítness named Grace Edem said that it was a worshipper who was having a night vigil in a nearby church that noticed when Christian was trying to bury the headless body.

The church members raised alarm and thereby invited a local vigilante group, who then alerted the Mbukpa divisional police.

“Upon the arrival of the police team, Christian, the suspect, allegedly confronted them and macheted one personnel before he was overpowered and taken away.” the witness narrated.

The scene was surrounded by neighbours and passersby who decried his persistent mystical and ritual activities.

The head of the woman was recovered from the pit inside the darkroom including some mystical items such as candles, flowers, oils and other fetish items.

Confessing before reporters, Christian said he killed his aunt because she tried to seduce him, adding that the deep hole in his room is where his powers come from.

“I am 24 years old. I work as a bouncer at 125 Old Ikang Road Calabar. The woman wanted to seduce me. The deep hole you saw inside my apartment is an empowerment area. That’s where I empower myself,” he said.

One of the victim’s children named Nkoyo said the incident happened between 5 am and 6 am.

According to Nkoyo, she heard some noise made by vigilante youths, adding that when she came out, she was told that someone had been killed and buried in the company.

Nkoyo said she saw Etteobong and asked him what happened and he said that he had killed her mother.

“It was at that point that the police arrived and started shooting in the air and I also ran inside the house. They arrested him. But he used the machete to injured one of the policemen before he was arrested,” she said.

She stated her mother usually went early outside to take her morning bath, adding that someone in a nearby building saw the suspect when he was trying to bury her body in the shallow grave he had dug.

The Deputy spokesperson of the State Police Command, Igiri Ewa, who confirmed the incident said the suspect is in police custody.

When the suspect’s father who lives a short distance away was informed of the incident, he reportedly retorted, “What’s your business? He killed his aunt. Let them take him away, they will soon bring him back.” 

The man was said to have picked up a shirt, shut the door and went out.
