It was gathered that the duo had been been quarrelling over who should harvest palm fruits in their late father’s oil palm plantation.

Confirming the incident, Alice, the daughter of the deceased said, “He went to the farm and met our father packing palm fruits, which he had cut from our family palm trees into a bag and shot him dead”

“He has been warning my father to stay away from the palm trees or he would deal with him but my father did not take him seriously, since the palm trees belong to the family.

“It was one hunter, who heard the gunshot and thought one of his colleagues had killed an animal and rushed over to share in the game but saw something else and raised the alarm.

“When the hunter saw Ekapong, my uncle, covered with blood, he was excited and rushed to open the bag which was beside him only to see a human head and private parts and he shouted.

“Other people in the surrounding farms and bushes rushed to the scene following the hunter’s shout for help and that was how the man was apprehended.”

Also confirming the report, the spokesperson for the police command in Cross River State, Irene Ugbo, said that the suspect has been arrested by the police, adding that further investigation into the incident was ongoing.
