The Police division in Akamkpa Local Government Area of Cross River State, has paraded a fake Chemist by the name, Godswill Umoren, for allegedly injecting a pregnant woman, Mrs. Uduak Udofia, in an attempt to abort her pregnancy but unfortunately lead to her death on February 11, 2017.

Umoren, who claimed to be a chemist, was said have administered the injection following the advice of the deceased’s husband, Mr. Sunday Udofia.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Hafiz Inuwa, while parading the suspect alongside 21 other alleged criminals at the headquaters of the Cross River State Police Command in Calabar said that the administered injection was meant to terminate the pregnancy of the deceased.

Inuwa said the suspect had confessed to the crime and would soon be charged to the court.

He said, “On February 11, 2017, one Sunday Udofia reported at Akamkpa Police Division that a chemist identified as Godswill Umoren had, in a bid to terminate and abort the pregnancy of his wife, Uduak Udofia, administered injection which led to her death. The suspect has confessed to the offence and will soon appear in court.”

But Umoren, who is an indigene of Ikot-Ekpene in Akwa Ibom State, admitted to administering the injection despite being a qualified health worker.

He said, “I was the one that gave her the injection. Her husband called me to his house to examine his sick wife. I asked her what happened, she said that she was having body pain and they bought drugs for her. When I gave her the injection initially, she did not die.

“I am not a medical personnel, I learnt how to administer drugs and inject patients from my brother who is a doctor. I only helped her to recover.”

Similarly, the police paraded a 25-year-old female armourer, Hope Usang, who was alleged to lease arms to suspected armed robbers in Calabar.

The commissioner of police said that Usang was arrested on February 24, 2017, following a case of armed robbery involving one Paschal Bisong of Ekpeyong Effiok Street in the Calabar Municipality axis of the metropolis.

He said that after Paschal had complained to the police about the robbery attack, his men swung into action and arrested one Emmanuel Edet-Etim and Idoreyin Usa.

The commissioner explained that after thorough investigation by the police, the suspects confessed that they got the arms from Usang for the robbery.

He told newsmen that the suspects would soon be charged to court accordingly.
