“It is quite unfortunate and devastating, already she is in protective custody, but the matter will surely be brought to Calabar,” the police spokesperson stated.

“It was gathered that the mother of two allegedly used a machete to cut off the head of the baby. A witness said the woman’s eight-year-old son raised the alarm about the killing, which attracted neighbours”, she added.

Meanwhile, the Obol Lopon of Ugep and paramount ruler of Yakurr, Obol Ofem-Ubana Eteng, has called for calm as the police launched an investigation into the matter.

Eteng said: “I immediately convened a meeting with my subjects because even though what happened has desecrated the land, I had to ensure that further bloodshed was averted.

“We appealed directly to young people in Ugep to tow the path of peace and rational thought in the face of this heinous crime, and they positively responded.”
