Two men, Ifeanyi Maxwell Dike and Ugochukwu Onwuamiro have been sentenced to death by hanging for the rape and gruesome murder of Eight-year-old girl at Messiah Close, in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

On May 13, 2020, Justice Adolphus Enebeli of the Rivers state High court delivered judgment in the case. He sentenced Dike and his accomplice, Ugochukwu Onwuamiro, to death by hanging for the rape and gruesome murder of the Eight-year-old girl named, Chikamso Victory Nmezurumba, in August 2017.

Justice Enebeli described the actions of Dike and Ugochukwu as satanic and deserved to die by hanging.

Recall that in 2017 Dike raped his relative Chikamso at Rivers State, killed her, and then removed her tongue, breasts, vagina, and eyes. He was caught on his way to dispose of her body by men of the vigilante group in the area.

He was however handed over to the men of Nigerian police but escaped with the help of one of the officers identified as Sgt Johnbosco Okoroeze who has since been dismissed from service.

Dike was caught again in Plateau state and brought back to Rivers state for his trial.

The court reduced the sentence of Sgt Johnbosco Okoroeze to one year having considered that he had been in custody since August 2017, been dismissed from the police, and is a family man.

Say no to rape.
