The Police in Rivers State have paraded a suspected murderer and organ harvester, Demian Okoligwe, who allegedly killed and dismembered the body of his female lover, Justina Otuene.
Okoligwe was paraded by the Commissioner of Police, CP Nwonyi Emeka at the police headquarters.
According to CP Nwonyi, Okoligwe, a 400-level student in the Department of Petrochemical Engineering of the University of Port Harcourt, had invited his lover, Otuene, a 300-level student of the university, to his house, where he killed her and harvested her organs.
The police boss narrated how the suspect was nabbed.
“On Wednesday, October 25, 2023, at about 3:30 pm, operatives of Ozuoba Division received a complaint from a Good Samaritan and neighbour (name withheld) of Road 20 at the back of NTA Ozuoba. He reported that he went to his house and perceived a very bad odour from the direction of the room where one Damian Okoligwe, a fellow tenant, lives.
“The DPO of the station led detectives to the scene and, on arrival, forced the door open to discover a ghana-must-go bag containing a lifeless body.
“The fleeing suspect was subsequently traced and arrested for an inquiry.
“The lifeless body of Justina Otuene, a 20-year-old Biochemistry 300-level UniPort student, was recovered and deposited at the mortuary. A preliminary investigation is in progress. The case has been transferred to the state CID for discreet investigation,” he said.
