Police parade re-arrested child killer in Rivers [PHOTO]
Ifeanyi Dike, who killed his eight-year-old niece, Victory Chikamso Nmezuwuba for ritual has been paraded by the Rivers State Police Commissioner, Ahmed Zaki.
The twenty-three year old suspected child killer and ritualist, Ifeanyi Dike, has said no one aided his escape from police custody in Port Harcourt.
Ifeanyi Dike, a second year Physics student of the University of Port Harcourt had escaped from the premises of the State CID in Port Harcourt after he was paraded for allegedly killing his eight-year old niece, Victory Chikamso for ritual purposes.
He was captured three after his escape by men of the Plateau state Police Command at Barkin Ladi.
On his extradition to Port Harcourt, Dike escaped on his own.
He said he got frustrated by traveling from Rivers state to Jos.
According to him, “I am a student of UNIPORT. When I got to Jos, I started hiding again even though I know that nobody knows me there.
“I was living inside an uncompleted building in that place but I could not endure anymore because I was hungry. I now came out and somebody looked for my trouble.
“The Hausa boy then use something like knife to cut my hand, out of anger I took a screw driver and stabbed him. That’s how they took us to police station.
“When we got to the Police, I told the Police who I am but they did not believe me until I called one of m
Zaki paraded the suspected ritualists at the State Command headquarters in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Monday.
Recall that the Plateau State Police Command had last week rearrested the runaway killer, a student of the University of Port Harcourt.
Dike was initially caught by a local vigilante during a failed attempt to dispose the body of the eight-year-old after removing some body parts, including her eyes and tongue.
He was subsequently handed over to the police in Rivers State, but escaped from custody.
