The Akwa Ibom State Police Command has apprehended a 40-year-old man, identified as Inyangake James Peter, for the brutal murder of his own mother, Mma Offiong James Peter.

The victim, who was approximately 70 years old, met her tragic end on the 4th of April 2024 around 9:00 am in Ikpe Annang Village, Essien Udim Local Government Area of the state. This disturbing incident marks yet another case of family violence within the region.

According to Mr. Odiko MacDon, the outgoing Police Public Relations Officer, the command has also taken into custody one Asuquo Isaac, who is accused of killing his 18-year-old son, Iboro Isaac, following a dispute within the family. MacDon revealed these distressing details in a statement issued on Monday in Uyo, the state capital.

In his statement, MacDon emphasized the gravity of the situation, highlighting the disturbing trend of family members resorting to violence against their own kin. He described the events leading to the arrests, stating that Inyangake James Peter confessed to the murder of his mother, claiming he heard a voice compelling him to carry out the heinous act.

Similarly, Solomon Asuquo Isaac, a resident of Ikot Obok Nsit in Nsit Ibom Local Government Area, was arrested for the murder of his son, Iboro Isaac, aged 18, last year amidst family disagreements. The command expressed deep concern over these cases of familial violence, stressing the need for swift and decisive action to address the issue.

In addition to these tragic incidents, the Akwa Ibom State Police Command’s Anti-Robbery Squad conducted a routine “stop and search” operation on the 9th of April 2024. During the operation, they apprehended one Ekemini Edet Akpan of Ekpene Ikpan Village, along Calabar Itu Highway near Raycon Construction Company. Akpan was found in possession of a locally made gun, a revolver pistol, and 18 live cartridges.

The suspects, including Inyangake James Peter, Solomon Asuquo Isaac, and Ekemini Edet Akpan, have been taken into custody pending further investigation. They are expected to face charges in court once the investigation is concluded.

These distressing incidents underscore the urgent need for community awareness and intervention to address underlying issues contributing to family violence. The Akwa Ibom State Police Command reaffirms its commitment to ensuring the safety and security of all citizens and urges the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the authorities promptly.
