Court sentences Ifeanyi Dike & Ugochukwu Nwamiro to death for Murdering an 8-year-old girl in 2017
NIGERIA – Court has sentenced two Nigerian students Ifeanyi Chukwu Maxwell Dike and his partner in crime Ugochukwu Nwamiro to death by hanging for the homicide they committed in 2017 involving an 8-year-old girl.
The culprits were sentenced to death without an option of fine. One is to be hung by his neck until he dies while the other is to be hung on the leg till he dies as well.
The 23 year-old Dike Maxwell was arrested by the local vigilante group who where working on the night of the incident along Eliozu in Port Harcourt with a sack containing the little girls body.
He was later handed to the police who took over the investigation of the case and further prosecution.
According to reports, the ritualist, Dike reportedly removed the victim’s eyes, vagina, finger and tongue, after defiling and murdering her with the assistance of his cousin, Ugochukwu.
After few days or remaining under the police watch he manged to escape from the police station with the help of a police personnel who was on duty that night.
Dike’s escape raised severe criticisms and condemnation for the police laxity even as the then Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Zaki Ahmed, described it as unfortunate and an embarrassment to the police force.
Some weeks later, Dike was however rearrested in Jos, Plateau State capital by security operatives and was brought back to Port Harcourt for trial. During trial, the police prosecutor, Sgt. Blessing Oheyen, tendered the body parts of the victim as evidence to the court.
Barely three years after trial commenced, the judge, Justice Adolphus Enebele, ruled that the evidences before the court showed that the duo conspired and murdered Chimkamso and hence, sentenced them to death.
The judge also sentenced Sergeant Johnbosco Okoronze of the State CID to one year imprisonment for aiding the escape of Dike from police custody.
Before he was arrested the alleged Kidnapper and ritualist lived on Messiah Street, Eliozu in Port Harcourt with his victim.
