The Akwa Ibom State police command has vowed to bring to justice everyone involved in the gruesome murder of a community youth president.
The deceased, Mr Hezekiah Adaiden was the Youth President of Inen community in the OrukAnam Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Odiko Mcdon, described the killing of the youth president as barbaric, adding that the perpetrators would be brought to book.
It was gathered that suspected cultists hacked the victim to death on Sunday.
An eyewitness said the hoodlums dragged him to a corner in his compound, beat him to a coma and cut off his head, leaving his body in a pool of blood.
The source said, “The cultists arrived in the compound at an odd hour in the night and since they were known by the youth president, he offered them drinks.
“While they were drinking around 1am, another group well armed arrived and was violent, as they dragged the victim to a corner and killed him.
“The most annoying is that they beheaded him and escaped with his head after they tortured his wife and poured the soup which the woman cooked on her head, as they beat her mercilessly.”
