A middle aged civil servant identified as Itagbor Ndifon Ntui from Oban Okorobar, Akamkpa Local Government Area, Cross River State was days ago murdered in circumstances that his family and the police are still trying to unravel, www.calitown.com can authoritatively reveal.
A close family source who spoke with www.calitown.com hinted that “…my uncle was killed at Odukpani junction last Thursday and the corpse deposited in a well. He was travelling to Eket (Akwa Ibom) with his wife and my aunt. At the park, one young boy approached him and called him aside; three others later joined them and they were having a little disagreement. His wife told us that the boys who are from the next village after ours, started beating him up and overpowered him. My aunt and his wife started shouting to raise alarm but nobody came to their rescue, then the boys put him on a bike and took him away. It was at that point that my aunt called us to come from Calabar and help her. We are certain that the person who killed our brother are from Etamgbingin community in Odukpani Local Government. The police should be aware of this.”
We also gathered that after the deceased was killed, his head was severed from his body and the corpse dumped in a well; it was discovered and retrieved two days after.
When contacted, police sources in Odukpani informed www.calitown.com that “what is baffling is that immediately the deceased was called out by his suspected assailants, he handed over his phone to his wife and appeared to know the suspects. You know he was a youth leader in his community and we suspect that those who killed him may have had an axe to grind with him”, one police source informed. The police say they are neck deep in investigations to bring the suspects to book.
