Four days ago, we gave you an update on the murder of 8-year-old Miss Chikamso Victory by a 23-year-old undergraduate of the University of Port-Harcourt, (UNIPORT) Maxwell Ifeanyi Chukwu Dike.
We told you that the devil-minded 200 level student was trying to dump the body of late Chikamso when he was apprehended by local vigilantes in the early hours of Saturday, August 19, St Messiah Street, Eliozu, Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital. He abducted the child, who was his neighbour, raped her and after killing her, he removed her vagina, eyes, tongue and breasts.
Here’s another update, Investigation into Chikamso’s murder took a different twist this morning, as the man who allegedly asked Dike, who is currently on the run, to get human body parts so they can use it for money ritual, was apprehended by officers of the Rivers state police command this morning.
In an interview with Channels TV this morning, here’s what the state commissioner of Police, Zaki Ahmed, disclosed.
“I’m delighted to inform you that the second suspect who the principal suspect alleged asked him to get those parts has been arrested this morning (Thursday). There are two of them. The principal suspect when he was arrested, he confessed to committing the crime and he mentioned that someone asked him to get some parts of a human being for them to make money.
So that person has been arrested this morning. I strongly suspect that this person we have arrested is involved in the crime. The boy gave his name and gave his number and he mentioned that this is the person who asked him to get these human parts that they are going to make money” he said
After being arrested by police, Ifeanyi Dike escaped from detention on Sunday night. The police boss said his men are working towards getting him rearrested.
