Couple kill son over witchcraft in Akwa Ibom

A couple in Akwa Ibom have been arrested by the state police command for alleged conspiracy and killing of their son.

The couple, Okon Essien and his wife, Peace, are alleged to have killed their son, David, whom they accused of being a wizard and responsible for their misfortunes.

When the couple were questioned, they confessed to the crime by revealing how the deceased was killed.

According to them, the deceased was lured into an engine boat and taken across the river after telling him that they were going to cut bamboo sticks in the swamp for the construction of their collapsed kitchen.

Essien said: “While at the swamp, we removed the already prepared fetish concoction called ‘asene’ and pumped it through his anus because anyone suspected to be a witch must die if he or she is actually a witch.” .
