Uniport finally speaks on identity of student who raped, killed 8-year-old girl for ritual | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The University of Port Harcourt, Uniport, has identified a 200-level student, Ifeanyi Dike of the Department of Physics, as the suspect who abducted, raped, killed and dismembered his 8-year old niece, for ritual purposes.

Uniport made the confirmation via a statement issued on Wednesday by the school’s spokesperson, Dr. Williams Wodi, in Port Harcourt.

Dike was said to have abducted, raped, killed and dismembered the body of his 8-year-old niece, Chikamso Nmezuwuba, on Aug. 19 for ritual purposes.

Members of a vigilance group arrested the suspect in the Eliozu area in Port Harcourt, while he was on the way to dispose the body of Chikamso, after using other parts of her body for ritual.

The suspect was handed over to the Rivers Police Command but escaped while in police detention.

The University’s spokesperson said the management of the university was worried with the development particularly the disappearance of the suspect from detention.
“Any university administration and indeed all Nigerians should be very concerned about having students in any of our universities who turn out to be suspected ritual murderers.
“The university is working tirelessly with law enforcement to fish out and bring to speedy justice such dubiously motivated characters who masquerade as student.
“UNIPORT is working in concert with security agencies with focus to re-arrest and bring the suspect to book to serve as deterrent to any other student with similar intent.
“We condole with the traumatised family of Chikamso and pray for eternal repose of her soul while hoping for speedy justice to punish the offender.
“We advise the public to direct further inquiries on this highly emotive and sensitive issue to the police that is already investigating the matter and the suspect’s unacceptable escape from custody.
“We wish to state that branding UNIPORT through distasteful media campaigns, especially by social media warriors, will be disrespectful of the memory of the murdered child.”

  1. The police station where the idiot disappeared from should be held responsible. How can you tell me that a suspect disappeared from there custody? Is it even possible without conspiracy with the police officers there? This story should better be told to the marines. It is the usual Nigerian system but God is watching. May any body who has a hand in this never have a child that is up to 8yrs. Any of such person will lose his or child that in the same way if not now, then later. Intact, I pray that they will start losing their children from this moment on so that they will also feel the pain the family of the victim is passing through now.

  2. My brother the young man was released! There is nothing like disappearance from cell. Is he a needle?

  3. That police station knows about the ritual the Dike of a guy is performing, maybe one of them sent him that errand of killing the little girl, what kind of policemen re there? Men! There is conspiracy!

  4. The whole story is just pathetic, May the benevolent God grants the soul of the innocent girl a repose in his kingdom & fortitude to the immediate family.
    The Zoo police is just a total failure.........for the DIKE of a guy, the Soul of Innocent CHIKAMSO will continue to torment you & your cohorts forever! feeling soooooooooooo sad right now.
