The police command in Cross River has confirmed the arrest of a woman for beheading her 11-month-old baby in the Yonen community of Ugep, Yakurr local government area.

It was gathered that the mother of two allegedly used a machete to cut off the head of the baby.

A witness said the woman’s eight-year-old son raised the alarm about the killing, which attracted neighbours.

Meanwhile, the Obol Lopon of Ugep and paramount ruler of Yakurr, Obol Ofem-Ubana Eteng, has called for calm as the police investigate the matter.

“I immediately convened a meeting with my subjects because even though what happened has desecrated the land, I had to ensure that further bloodshed was averted,” said Mr Eteng. “We appealed directly to young people in Ugep to tow the path of peace and rational thought in the face of this heinous crime, and they positively responded.”
