Abia State Police Command parades man for beheading woman in Aba

rescueThe Abia State Police Command, On Monday, paraded one Emmanu­el Effiong,  from Ikot Eket in Akwa Ibom State for allegedly be­heading a yet- to be identified woman in Aba.
According to the police, the suspect dumped the headless body of the victim in a motor park in Aba after escaping with the sev­ered head.
Commissioner of Po­lice, Mr Leye Oyebade, who paraded the sus­pect along side with sev­eral other criminals in Umuahia, said the inci­dent occurred on Sep­tember 20.
The police boss ex­plained that the sus­pect confessed to the heinous crime while he was being interrogated after his arrest in a kid­nap case.
He said that the sus­pect had contacted his former employer on phone and threatened to kidnap him if he failed to pay N15 mil­lion into his (suspect’s) bank account on or be­fore October 5.
Police said the suspect who resides at No 56 Nweke Street Aba, was later picked up from his hideout where three knives, and a mo­bile phone were recov­ered from him.
Later in an inter­view, the suspect said he found the victim al­ready dead at a motor park before chopping off the head.
The former security guard said he threw the severed head of the victim into Aba River on the advice of a mad woman.
According to him, he had given alms to the mad woman and she told him to bring a hu­man head so as to be delivered from ‘spirits’ following him.
“I dashed money to a mad woman one day and she told me that bad spirits are follow­ing me, and that is why I have not been success­ful in life. She told me to bring a human head in order to be delivered.
“So, when I saw the dead woman in the mo­tor park, I came in the night and cut off the head and threw it inside.
