A 32-year-old murder suspect, one Stephen Anona, who gruesomely murdered one Daniel Bassey Solomon and dismembered his body into smaller parts for easy disposals, has been arraigned in a magistrate’s court in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, charged for murder.

Anona, who allegedly committed the murder on July 28, 2015 on Itu Road, Uyo, was charged to the magistrate’s court, and it was stated that since the case at hand was a very serious criminal offence, its jurisdiction was beyond the magistrate’s powers, thus necessitated the lower court to order the remand of the accused person in Uyo Prison custody.

It was gathered that the office of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) in the state Ministry of Justice, where the court ordered the case to be forwarded for expert advice, would soon file proper case at the High Court to expeditiously try the accused over “his despicable and shocking criminal action against a fellow human.”

It would be recalled that the out-gone Police Commissioner in the state, Mr. Gabriel Achong, in his last assignment in Uyo, paraded before some newsmen, Stephen Anona, an indigene of Njikoka in Anambra State, who allegedly slaughtered one Daniel Bassey Solomon from Uruan Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, for allegedly not defraying a debt of N750, 000 owed him (Stephen Anona).

P.C. Achong, had told the press that the deceased, said to be a barber, was allegedly assisted by his assailant, revealing that Stephen Anona, lured his victim into his one rented room apartment on Itu Road, Uyo and gave him some poisoned food which made him (Daniel) to fall into deep sleep. “Then Stephen used a sharp matchet and cut off his head, severe his legs, hands and the abdomen, and carefully packed them into different bags and secretly dumped them into gutters and other places.”

News Express gathered that even as Stephen was taken to the court, he was still feeling and behaving as nothing serious was happening and was even more desirous to commit more harm and more atrocities, if given any slightest chance.
