According to Vanguard reports, Bassey, who said she lost all her five children, two husbands and her mother in mysterious circumstances, narrated how she went to her mother's grave to cry and seek to seek solutions to her woes and after crying at the grave, the late mother appeared to her in a dream and revealed that the 75-year-old Udo was behind her woes.

When she woke up, she continued, she went to confront the father but he refuted the allegations and rather, used a stick to beat her for daring to come up with the accusations.

In anger, she said she collected the stick and hit the father in return till he gave up the ghost.

Hear her:

“The evening after the dream, I went to my father and confronted him with these revelations and after some arguments, he brought out a stick and beat me with it. Provoked by that beating, coupled with how I was already feeling about him, I seized the stick from him and hit him in return.

People in the neighbourhood rushed to intervene and I went back to my house and there was nothing wrong with my father when I left. I am surprised that the next day, I was told he died."

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Cordelia Nwawe, who confirmed the incident, said the suspect would soon be charged to court when investigations are concluded.
