Satanic siblings: We murdered lecturer, sold his car and buried him with his phone



He simply disappeared, along with his car, a Lexus 300 Sports Utility Vehicle. Every effort made by the family to trace his whereabouts ended in a cul-de-sac. There was just no breakthrough.

Blessing, the wife, told Saturday Sun that she reported the incident to the police and the Department of State Service (DSS) in Uyo, but that nothing came out of her efforts.

That was until recently, nearly six years after, when she was summoned by the Imo State Police Command to come and identify suspects arrested in respect of her husband’s disappearance.

The Anti-Kidnapping Squad of the Imo State Police Command arrested Ephraim Etim Akpabio and another suspect on March 17, this year in Ikot Ekpene, Akwa Ibom State and Port Harcourt, Rivers State respectively. It was then that Blessing and the rest of the family discovered how Edward met his end in a gruesome manner.

It happened that 28-year-old Ephraim Etim Akpabio, an ex-student of Akwa Ibom Polytechnic, conspired with his brother, Abais Ofiok Etim, to murder the lecturer. After killing him, the two brothers buried the deceased with his phone in a bush at Udung Ukim Community in Ikono Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State. They subsequently took the deceased’s vehicle to Port Harcourt, Rivers State where they sold it off.

Akpabio’s younger brother, Abais Ofiok Etim, is currently being detained at the Ikot Ekpene Correctional Centre on robbery-related charges.

Saturday Sun gathered that on January 25 this year, Rev. Father Remigus Osuagwu, the parish priest of St. Thomas Catholic Church, Oboineze went to make a report at the Imo State Police Command. He had bought a car, a Lexus 300 with registration number Delta SKL 531 FN at Port-Harcourt. He wanted to change the documents of the car to his own name and he discovered through the phone number used in registering it in 2015 that the actual owner of the vehicle had been missing since November 2015.

Immediate past Commissioner of Police in Imo State, Mr. Nasiru Mohammed, who was redeployed earlier this week, told Saturday Sun: “Immediately the case was reported, I ordered the Commander of the Anti-Kidnapping Unit, Oladimeji Deyeyiwa, a Superintendent of Police, and his operatives to follow up on the case. They swung into action through intelligence gathering and Ephraim Etim Akapabio was arrested on March 17 in Ikot Ekpene. His younger brother, Abais Ofiok Akbabio is currently in prison for armed robbery. Another suspect, Vincent Nsisong Udoh, 26, was arrested same day in Port Harcourt. He had stood as surety for Akpabio while selling the deceased’s car for N700,000. The two suspects are currently in police custody and we have recovered the deceased’s vehicle.”

Ephraim Etim Akpabio, the suspect, told Saturday Sun that he studied Business Administration at the Akwa Ibom Polytechnic and got an OND from the school in 2014.

“I knew the deceased, Cyprian Anthony Edward through my brother in 2011. He was my friend. He helped me in getting admission. Whenever I visited him in his house, he would cook for me and would always take care of me. He got a house for me when I got admission to Akwa Ibom State Polytechnic. He would come to my room and stay with me and discuss issues with me. He promised to give me admission for my HND programme.
