How Sacked Akwa Ibom LG Chairman Sent Us to Kill the Secretary - Suspects Make Shocking Confession

Murder suspects who were arrested for the killing of an Akwa Ibom Local Government Council secretary, have fingered a sacked Chairman as their sponsor.

Akwa Ibom State Police Command on Saturday announced arrest of eight persons suspected to be the killers of the late Ukanafun Local Government Council Secretary, Ime Atakpa, Daily Post reports.

Imo Commissioner of Police told newsmen that all had confessed that they were sponsored by the sacked LG chairman Abasiono Udomfu.

It will be recalled that Abasiono Udomfu was arraigned in court for murder last week.

Governor Udom Emmanuel had dissolved the council few days after the police arrested and detained Udomfu for the alleged crime.

Awunah said: “Four armed men, namely: Godwin Daniel Ikpe, alias One man chop; Aniefiok Eseme Etukudo, alias Barbeach-archor; Saturday Etim Isong, alias Saty; and English-man were arrested at different locations in Port Harcourt on May 22, 2017, May 23, 2017 and May 24, 2017 respectively.

“They all confessed to the crime mentioning the caretaker committee chairman of Ukanafun Local Government Area, Barrister Abasiono Jackson Udomfu, as their sponsor.

“Other suspects arrested in connection with this crime include: Akaninyene Sunday Iwok, 34 years; Aniedi Okon Udosen, 32 years; and Ekere Friday Joseph.

“Items recovered from the suspects include: one handset belonging to the deceased secretary, Obong Ime Willie Atakpa, and one red coloured Qlink 125 motorcycle.”

Atakpa was killed on April 16, 2017 by four gunmen with three motorcycles in his poultry farm at Ikot Udo Obodo village, Ukanafun.

However, Awunah said the people of Ukanafun, Etim-Ekpo and Oruk-Anam lacal government areas will now heave sigh of relief, as a man behind serial killings, kidnap for ransom and threat messages has been arrested.

The police commissioner said that prominent citizens of Ukanafun and environs had received threats of death and kidnap for ransom through GSM No: 08150657348.

Awunah lamented that some persons had become victims by making payment.

He disclosed that detectives traced the phone number to Utom Ekponudim Uyo of Ikot Oku Usung village, who was arrested on June 26 at about 5.50am with two Nokia phones and an Airtel SIM card.
