Escape Of Man Who Killed Girl For Ritual Embarrassing – Rivers Deputy Governor

Rivers State Deputy Governor, Dr. (Mrs.) Ipalibo Harry Banigo, has said it is embarrassing to hear that a ritual murder suspect in police custody could escape.

In a statement from her office in the Government House, Port Harcourt, the Deputy Governor said the Police and other law enforcement agencies should step up their game and ensure that the felon is re-arrested and brought to justice without delay.

She stressed that the report that the suspect escaped from the hands of the Investigating Police officer is totally unacceptable.

Banigo who condoled the bereaved family on the gruesome murder of little Miss Victory Chikamnso said “as a mother I am still numb with shock to hear that a full grown man could defile an eight year old girl and also go ahead to mutilate her body for purported money rituals”.
