Mad woman advised me to sacrifice human head – Suspect

A 20-year-old man identified as Emmanuel Effiong has been arrested for beheading a woman at Aba park in Abia State.
According to him, a mad woman allegedly advised him to throw a human head into a river or he would go mad.
Effiong made the confession while in the custody of the police. He was arrested by police operatives in Aba, Abia State in connection with a threat to the life of one Ikechukwu Udogu
But in his confessional statement, he revealed thus,“I gave a mad woman money one day in Aba and she told me to look for a skull or human head and throw inside a river or I will go mad.

“One morning, when I saw a lifeless body in front of the park, I decided to cut off the dead woman’s head for the exercise. I threw the head into the Aba River to remain a normal person,” he confessed.
It was gathered that the police began search for Effiong following a tip-off that an unknown person, through a phone text, threatened to kill one Udogu, if he failed to pay him N15m ransom.
The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Adeleye Oyabade, who confirmed the arrest of the suspect, said he confessed to the crime.
Oyebade added that the suspect also confessed that he was behind the headless woman found on September 29, 2016 at the Aba main motor park.
He said three knives and a phone were recovered from the suspect, adding that investigation was in progress to unravel the mystery behind the dastardly act.
Effiong, who said he hails from Ikot Edet in Akwa Ibom State, accepted that he demanded the ransom from Udogu for refusing to pay him his salary since September 2009.
He said, “I served Mr. Udogu for many years as his gate-man, but he stopped paying my salary since September 2009. So, I decided to send him the threat message to get my money from him.”
