Suspected ritual killer, Ifeanyichukwu Maxwell Dike, who escaped from the custody of the Rivers State Police Command, last month, has revealed how he managed to get to Jos, after been rearrested by the Plateau State Police Command.
Dike, a 300-level Physics student at the University of Port Harcourt, was apprehended by a vigilante group on his way to dispose off the body of 8-year-old Victory Chikqmso, whom he allegedly kidnapped, raped and murdered. .
He, however, escaped at the state CID, barely 24 hours after being paraded. But the Plateau State Police Commissioner, Mr. Peter Ogunyanwo, said the culprit was rearrested in Jos, after breaking into a house in Barkin Ladi to steal. The suspect allegedly broke into the home of an unnamed resident and stabbed him in what appears to be a robbery incident.
Dike while speaking with journalists, said he travelled to Jos from Port Harcourt through a trailer that loaded goods to Jos. “I came to Jos on August 21, 2017 because I was trying to run away from the alleged ritual offense I was said to have committed, but I am not a ritual killer.
I only had sex with the girl and cut off her body while trying to escape from the environment, but I am not a ritual killer,” he said.
While speaking on why he was arrested trying to robbed a house in Barkin Ladi he said: “I thought it was an abandoned house because I was looking for a place to hide so that people will not identify me, but unfortunately the owner was in the house and he raised alarm then I was arrested.”
