Reacting to the incident, the spokesperson for the Rivers State Police command, SP Grace Iringe Koko confirmed the incident. SP Koko said the suspect confessed to the crime that he used a hoe to head the mother on the head before using cutlass.
SP Koko added that the Commissioner of Police, CP Effiong Okon has ordered for the transferred of the suspect from Eleme Police Division to State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) for discreet and thorough investigation.
