Anietie Inyang, a 31-year-old prophet, from Ikot Ebak village, has been arrested.
The man was nabbed by the Akwa Ibom State Police Command for allegedly sodomising a 12-year-old boy.
Inyang was alleged to have engaged in anal sex with the victim, who lives with his grandmother at Ikot Ada Utor in Afaha Clan in Essien Udim Local Government Area of the state.
According to reports, the suspect was earlier arrested by the Essien Udim Police Division but released on bail without being charged to court, and attempts were made to cover up the case.
