According to Daily Independent, the incident happened in Onicha Uboma Autonomous Community, Imo State. The woman, Ifeoma, allegedly killed her one-year-old baby, plugged out her eyes and drank her blood, inside her husband’s shop.
It was gathered that her husband, Azubuike Emedom, left his baby in the custody of his wife and embarked on a business trip, only to return the next morning to find out that the mother and child we’re missing. When he got to the shop, he discovered that the shop was locked from the inside.
After repeated knocks, he was said to have broke down the door, only to find Ifeoma inside with blood on her mouth and the baby wrapped in blood stained cloth. He uncovered the baby and discovered that she had died, with her eye balls plucked out. Her hands and legs were also broken.
One of the community leaders alleged that Ifeoma is of a marine spirit. His words: “I believe she used this child for sacrifices, she sucked the blood of the child because by the time we caught her, her mouth was full of blood. She killed the baby intentionally.
She always renders sacrifice to their gods in the river. Some months ago, she attempted to kill a woman from our community. She injured the woman with a knife. Confirming the news, DSp Andrew Enwerem, the Police Public Relation Officer of the Imo Police Command, said investigations were on going.
