Police have arrested an aged physically impaired woman after a fresh human skull was found in her house at Nung Oku Ibiet village, Oruk Anam local government area, Akwa Ibom state.

The suspect, Mrs Eseme James, when paraded Friday at the police headquarters in Ikot Akpan Abia, Uyo, denied any wrongdoing.

“I don’t know anything about this skull,” she told journalists, “they [security operatives] came to the house and when I asked this girl [her daughter] what was going on since I cannot see, she told me that police exhumed human skull from the boundary of that disputed land; and they gave it to me to bring to the police station. That is why I’m here.”

But police believe the presence of the skull point to a recent murder.

State police spokesman Odiko Macdon hinted that the woman is suspected to be involved in ritual activities.

He said the woman confessed to the police that her late husband was a native doctor and that her son took over the trade when he passed away.

“My husband was a native doctor,” the suspect told the press. “I have never seen him do anything with human parts. I don’t know who buried that skull there. The land has been in dispute even before my husband died.”

Mrs. James was seized on 12 October 2021 at about 6:45 pm by the Nigerian Army under the operation ‘Still Water’ and handed over to the police for investigations.

Investigation is ongoing.

Still on Friday, Macdon said police had separately rescued two babies stolen from their parents at gunpoint in the state.

One of the infants is aged one month and three weeks while the other is six months old.

He said: “Based on a tip-off, the operatives of anti-child theft ambushed and arrested four robbery/child stealing syndicate and rescued a six-month-old baby.

“They are Emmanuel Effiong ‘M’; Ibanga Sunday ‘M’; Editi Effiong ‘f’; and Idorenyin Iron ‘f’ of Ikot Okubo, Ibesikpo Asutan.

“Investigation revealed that the syndicate used motorbike on Oct. 8, at about 9:00 pm, masked their faces and invaded the house of Mr/Mrs Effiong Udo of Ikot Okubo Ibesikpo Asutan LGA at gunpoint.

“At the time of the rescue, arrangement had been concluded to sell the child for N400, 000.00,” Macdon said.

On the one month, six weeks old baby, Macdon said a 40-year-old suspect, Margaret Akpan, of Ekpene Ukim in Uruan LGA, went to the house of the mother’s victim, Mrs Blessing Ekwere.

He said that the suspect pretended to be sick and thereafter sent the said Blessing, the mother of the baby, to buy drugs for her.

He added that the suspect ran away with her baby boy before the mother returned from where she went to buy the drugs for her.
