The face of evil . The Akwa Ibom State Police Command on Wednesday paraded a 28-year old man, Edet Asuquo, said to have murdered a pregnant woman.
Asuquo who hails from Ikot Otu in Itu Local Government Area of the state, had connived with four others, now at large, to allegedly remove the foetus from the woman’s womb at night.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Cordelia Nwawe, while parading the suspect at the headquarters in Uyo, the state capital, said the deceased, who came from Cross River State and whose identity is unknown, was said to be a customer to Asuquo who deals in oysters.

According to the PPRO, “Asuquo, having sold the first part of his seafood to the pregnant woman, lured her to his home claiming that he had abundance of oysters at a cheaper rate.
“On Monday, January 11, the woman had innocently followed Asuquo to his home, where she was killed and her corpse hidden near a plantain tree on the premises.
“The suspect and those at large were contracted by a village leader for N250, 000, to kill a pregnant woman and remove the woman’s head and the foetus for ritual purpose.
“Luck, however, ran out on them as Asuquo’s sister reported the matter to their elder brother, who invited the police.“The pregnant mother had gone to the market to buy oysters from Asuquo. The man lured her to his house to buy more oysters. The unsuspecting pregnant woman was murdered there,” the police spokesperson stated.
Confessing to the crime, Asuquo said a leader in his village gave a job to him and his friends to kill a pregnant woman for N50, 000 so that he could use the foetus for sacrifice.
He said, “We were five that were asked to kill a pregnant woman so that her head and her unborn child would be removed and used for ritual purpose.
“He told us that after we have carried out the job, he will give each one of us N50, 000. He did not give us any advance payment.
“After we had done the job, my sister reported the matter to my elder brother, who in turn called the police and I was arrested on Monday,” Asuquo confessed.
