The senior project manager of the Humanist Association for Peace and Social Tolerance Advancement, Mr. Ayobami Ojedokun who was taking care of the boy in partnership with another group, told Punch in Uyo on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 that Okon who is an orphan was left in the care of his paternal aunt, identified simply as Ekaeyen, at Etebi community in the Esit Eket Local Government Area of the state.

Ojedokun revealed that a few days ago, the aunt had woken Okon from sleep and took him to her husband asking him to confess to being a wizard which the poor boy denied vehemently.

This action angered Ekayen who threatened to throw him into a river and just as said, on Sunday, November 16, 2014, the woman took Okon to the Imo River and threw him into the water hoping that he gets drowned by the water.

Ojedokun said, “She actually threw Okon into Imo River thinking that the boy would drown. The boy came out of the water alive and went to their home, only to be told that her auntie had relocated.”

When contacted to confirm the incident, the acting Police Public relations officer, Akwa Ibom State Police Command, Mr. Iboro Victor, denied having any knowledge of the case.

He said, “The incident is not to my knowledge right now.”
