Justice Agness Onyebueke of the Akamkpa High Court division, Cross River State sentenced Mr. Anyanime Festus Udo to death by hanging for killing his twin daughters.
Delivering judgment minutes ago in suit number HK/6C/2018, Justice Onyebueke said the killer’s act is satanic, demonic, and beyond human comprehension.
Mr. Festus had given his 11-year-old girls a malt drink mixed with acid from his motorcycle, one died at the spot (January 10, 2017) while the second crawled to the road where a good samaritan rescued and died the next day in the hospital.
