Commissioner for Lands in voodoo scare
The commissioner for Lands in Akwa Ibom State Architect Ime Ekpo has landed in more trouble than he envisaged following his open identification with voodoo popularly known as Mbiam.
Arch Ekpo who called a meeting of his ward Ubium South Three in the House of the ward Chairman Nsobom Ikopo had informed the delegates who were at the meeting that the gathering is called at the instance of Effiong Bob.
The commissioner told his audience that he was going to pay them one hundred thousand naira each if they promised and assure him of supporting Effiong Bob’s Son, Otobong Effiong Bob.
After making the statement, Ekpo three of the attendees informed our reporter had to tell them that he will have to extract commitment from them by making them depose to a voodoo which will be administered on them by Etim Arthur alias carton.
It was learnt that at this time, there was a wild protest as delegates maintained that they will not depose or swear to any Voodoo.
But the Chairman of Ubium South three Nsobom Ikopo whose house was used to host the meeting rushed to take the voodoo and then collected the one hundred thousand naira.
Others kept their ground and refused to swear to the Mbiam.
The witness who came with the Voodoo priest as a witness we learnt is known as Emem Ekpa.
Efforts to speak with the commissioner proved abortive as he refused to take his calls when notified on the incident.
Effiong Bob’s media handlers refused to comment when contacted.
