Airforce Men Strip And Beat Up Man And Wife

The attackers, Corporals Michael Williams and Akwaowo William serve with the Nigerian Airforce, while Uduak William serves with the Nigeria Police. The other Ekereobong William, is a civilian. They are brothers.
The quartet was said to have beaten up and
stripped their uncle, Mr. Polycarp William, and
his wife, Mrs. Anna William. They were also said to have destroyed some economic trees and a Volvo 740 saloon car belonging to Polycarp.
An eyewitness, Mrs. Theresa Ekong, told our
correspondent that the four men acted on the
suspicion that Polycarp and Anna used witchcraft to hinder their progress.
She stated that the four had driven the
septuagenarians from Ediene Abak community
after stripping them naked and made them walk on the streets of the community.
She said, “All the four brothers said their uncle
and his wife had been responsible for their lack of progress at work and in life through

“There were bruises on Anna’s knees as the men dragged her on the ground. She and her
husband were ordered out of their home and
When our correspondent visited the scene, all
the residents living within and around the
compound where the septuagenarians were
assaulted refused to speak for fear of reprisal.
Newsmen observed that some tenants had
already begun to leave the house. It was gathered that some of them had received
repeated threats by ‘boys’ suspected to be acting on instructions of the suspects.
Speaking to our correspondent on the telephone from Ikot Obio Inyang village, Etinan LGA, where Polycarp and Anna were taking refuge, Anna, who gave her age as 70 years said her sister, husband and a maid were dragged out of their house in the early hours of Monday morning.
She said, “We were stripped naked, ordered to
sit on bare floor. They tied my neck with dried
plantain leaves and hired a cameraman to take
my pictures.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, Akwa Ibom
State Command, ASP John Patrick confirmed the incident. He said, “The matter has been transferred to the anti-robbery squad at the State Criminal Investigation Department.”
