Man, Stepmother Kill 12-Year-Old Son Over Witchcraft In Akwa Ibom


A man, Essien Okon and his wife Peace Okon who allegedly killed his 12 year old son Joseph was paraded alongside other suspected criminals at Akwa Ibom state on Wednesday.

The father who confessed to the crime said that Joseph was a wizard who killed his late wife and caused some other misfortunes in the family.

Essien and his new wife Peace therefore allegedly prepared a deadly concoction with a particular 'Asene seed' and forced the boy to drink it. 

The state Commissioner of Police, Zaki Ahmed, in his discussion with journalists, said the suspects would be arraigned at the end of investigation.

 “On March 25, 2019, operatives of Oron division arrested one Essien Okon and Peace Okon of Edoho Emma Street, Oron Local Government Area, who conspired and lured their son, Joseph Okon, now deceased, whom they accused of witchcraft, into an engine boat on the pretext of going to cut bamboo sticks in a swamp to be used for construction of a kitchen.

“While at the swamp, the suspects removed a concoction, prepared with poisonous seed called Asene and water; they used enema and pumped the concoction into the deceased’s stomach, leading to his instant death. The suspects secretly dug a shallow grave in the swamp and buried the deceased there,” he said.
