The Cross-River Police Command has paraded one twenty-nine years old Idara Aniefiok Amos, who allegedly hacked his mother, Ekaette Aniefiok Amos to death.

Idara who was paraded alongside 15 others arrested for sundry offences said that he cannot explain what came over him.

Parading the suspects in Calabar, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Gyogon Grimah, said Idara, who also set ablaze their residence at No. 22 Asuquo Street, Calabar South, had blamed the mother for his worsening economic condition.

The Commissioner of Police said: “The mother, Ekaette Aniefiok Amos ‘f’ age 62yrs escaped from the burning house unhurt, but the suspect used an iron hoe to hit his mother on the head. Victim died on the way to hospital.”

In an interview, the suspect claimed that something strange pushed him into the act.

He said: “I actually cannot explain what caused me to do it. For the last few months, my life has turned upside down but I cannot explain anything now.”

The Commissioner also disclosed that the last Valentine’s Day celebration in Cross River State was not without bloodshed as one Amber Ubung, 30 years old, brutally butchered his girlfriend for failing to visit him for Valentine rendezvous after she was mobilised financially.

Grimah said: “On 17/2/2024 at 1000hrs, some community leaders from Okuni in Ikom Local Government Area reported that one Amber Ubung ‘m’ age 30yrs of the above community gave his girlfriend, one Blessing Onawu ‘f’ age 25yrs the sum of seven thousand naira (N7,000) to plate her hair and thereafter visit him on 14th February 2024, being Valentine’s Day.

“After waiting patiently, the said lady did not show up. The suspect armed himself with a machete, went to the dwelling house of Blessing Onawu, attacked and gave her machete cuts all over her body with intent to kill her.

“In an attempt by the victim’s mother to rescue her from the blood-thirsty Amber, he in turn used the same machete to inflict various degrees of machete cuts on her.

“The suspect was arrested with the machete and transferred to SCID for discreet investigation and diligent prosecution as soon as investigation is concluded.

“Meanwhile, the victims are receiving treatment in different hospitals.”

He disclosed that 16 suspects were arrested for various offences within the period under review with assorted arms, ammunition and properties including big generators, flat screen TV sets, among other items, recovered.

The police chief advised members of the public with useful intelligence on the activities of criminals to always call the Command Control Room via 08133569456 for prompt and timely response at all times.

He assured of the determination of the police to continue to work assiduously to ensure that the state remained peaceful.
