Cultist arrested for raping pregnant women



POLICE in Ikot Udobong Community, Etim Ekpo Local Government of Akwa Ibom State have nabbed a notorious cult gang leader, Victor Frank Ikpongke (alias Akpan Prophet) and his second in command.
Ikpongke who is one of the repentant youths that surrendered arms during the recent peace talk with the government was said to have returned to his community and abducted a pregnant woman, raped her all night and then forced her to swear with human skull that she will not tell her husband.
The woman (names withheld) however, defiled the threat and informed her husband who invited Police from the area and the suspects arrested.
Parading the suspects, the state Commissioner of Police, Musa Kimo said they were members of the dreaded cult group, Iceland in Etim Ekpo and Ukanafun Local Government Areas which have been causing mayhem in the areas.
Speaking with our Crime Correspondent, Ikpongke admitted that he is a member and not leader of Iceland cult who served under “Aboy Ikpo”.
He further admitted that he was appointed to be leader of the youths in his community after he surrendered his arms recently. “Before, I made peace, I was a member of the Iceland cult” he said.
On the rape of the pregnant woman, he said the woman in question was his girlfriend before the crises that engulfed Etim Ekpo and Ukanafun. He said further that he called the woman on phone and she came to meet him in a junction.
According to Ikpongke, from there, I took her to my house and slept with her and it was the following morning a man came and claimed she was his wife.
But investigations revealed that he went to the woman’s house with a gun and abducted her to his house and raped her overnight.
