The Akwa Ibom State police command has denied having a certain Glory Edet, a restaurant operator on Itam road, Uyo, in custody.
Glory Edet was accused of cooking with water used in bathing corpses to attract and retain her customers.
The Public Relations Officer of the command, SP Odiko Macdon gave the rebuttal in a statement on Thursday following online publications that the command arrested the woman who was said to have confessed to the crime.
SP Odiko called on anyone with useful information relating to the issue to contact the police with the name and address of the mortuary, name, and address of the mortuary attendant and the investigating police officer handling the case as well as date and place of arrest.
The PPRO warned peddlers of fake information to desist immediately or face the full weight of the enduring law in Akwa Ibom State.
