An investigation into a 10-year-murder old’s in Isiokpo, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State has yielded two suspects.
In a local thicket on Friday, November 12, authorities discovered the decapitated body of a young girl called Destiny Peter.
His intestines had also been taken by the alleged ritualists, according to reports.
According to a local who spoke to Punch without revealing his identity said that such an incident has never occurred in the neighborhood.
No one knows for sure whether or not this is a ceremonial killing. Help us solve the murder of this young innocent boy by bringing in the authorities and the police. After hearing that the boy’s aunt was taking care of him, someone came to take him away from her. When she returned, she was surprised to find the boy missing and began yelling and weeping,” he said.
Victory Johnson, the victim’s aunt, said Destiny had lived with her for more than seven years and that he was last seen around 4.30 p.m. last Thursday after a neighbor welcomed him to his home.
Destiny’s body was discovered thanks to the involvement of some teenagers after a girl reported seeing him with an unidentified male moving into a bush.
Nnamdi Omoni, a spokesman for the State Police Command, confirmed the occurrence and said two individuals had been apprehended in following the murder.
“Yes, I can confirm it. The matter, for now, has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department and justice will be served,” he added.
