Cross River – Twin sisters identified as Ikwo and Idak Effiom Effiong, allegedly killed their elder brother Kokoette Effiom Effiong, over their father’s landed property in Ikot Nakanda, Akpabuyo Local Government Area of Cross River State.
The duo who are now in the police claimed their brother had acquired a substantial sum of money from the sale of their father’s land without sharing the proceeds.
According to CrossRiverWatch, they asked that the proceeds from the sale of another parcel of land be divided equally among all the siblings. However, their brother’s refusal to do so led to the conspiracy and plot for his death.
Kokoette reportedly died as a result of severe knife stabs to his head during the attack by the twins.
Kokoette’s cousin, Otop Idebe said the sisters lured Kokoette from the house to a bush outside their home, and attacked him, causing severe cuts on his head and arms.
The suspects have been arrested by the police for further investigations.
