It has been recently reported by Vanguard News that a man who simply identifies as Ekapong has been arrested in Cross River for shooting his elder brother, cutting off his head and genitals over palm fruits. During an interview with the deceased's daughter, Alice, she revealed that their uncle cut off her father's head and genitals after shooting him because of a family dispute over who owns the palm trees and who can harvest from it.
According to her, their uncle has always warned her father to keep his family away from the palm fruits even though it belonged to the entire family. Her father did not take his previous threats to heart and went to harvest. They suddenly heard a gunshot and hunters around thought Ekapong had caught good game seeing blood on his bag. After they opened it, they were shocked to find his elder brother's head and genitals inside which made them raise alarm. That was how the suspect was arrested by the police.
She said, "Our uncle cut off my father's head and genitals after shooting him. It was hunters who checked his bloody bag that raised alarm after finding out what happened. He killed our father because he harvested palm fruits from our family farm".
