The Akwa Ibom State Police Command yesterday paraded a man named Akaninyene Sunday Okokon who allegedly beat his 16-year-old daughter to death for using his phone to call her boyfriend.
Commissioner of Police Olatoye Durosinmi in a press conference at the command’s headquarters in Ikot Akpanabia, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital, said: “On 11th December 2022, relying on credible information, operatives of Ikot Ebo Divisional Headquarters arrested Akaninyene Sunday Okokon who beat up his daughter, Abasiono Akaninyene Sunday, age 16, for using his SIM card to call her boyfriend. The victim fainted and was rushed to a prayer house at Ikot Iya village instead of being taken to a hospital.”
The suspect during an interview admitted to the crime.
“I beat my daughter but she did not die when I stopped beating her; it was after I stopped beating her that her mother told me that she was having stomach upset,” he said.
