Ebonyi police arrest 7 men for killing 7-year-old girl

 
Officers of the Ebonyi State Police Command, on Tuesday, announced the arrest of seven suspects in connection with the murder of a 7-year-old girl, Ukamaka Ogboji.

The victim was allegedly killed for ritual purposes on Sunday at Agubia in Ikwo Local Government Area of the state. The suspects had earlier kidnapped Ogboji for monetary gains, and then dismembered her body parts before dumping same in a cassava farm.

 

The State Police Command spokesperson, Sylvester Igbo, while confirming the arrest of the suspects, commended the community youth organisation known as Ebonyi Youth Assembly for their assistance towards the arrest of the suspects.

Igbo revealed that two of the suspects had already confessed to the crime, adding that the police had commenced full investigation to ascertain the motive behind the brutal killing of the deceased.
“What we have observed at the scene made us to attribute the killing to ritual killing and not kidnapping, because the corpse of the deceased was without two legs, hands and eyes,” he said.

“From the act, it is a ritual killing. Through police investigation, we have been able to arrest seven suspects, among whom two have confessed to the crime. One of them confessed that his mother was the spiritual mother of the girl when she was baptised.”

Wickedness is now a trend! na wah oh. God na ur hand i dey oh!

Eme Achanga said...

Chai Naija nawa o.Why are they showing these accused faces na?Why are they not putting on shirts or suits?

I thought the Lagos State Comm of Police said they didn't show the faces of Cynthia's murderers because they was a new law passed that"Every accused is innocent until proven guilty"?

That said"May they rot in hell for taking a lil girl's life

The sad part baout this is that not one out of the 7 even stopped it. If a 7 yr old cannot grow in peace then Nigeria is gone.

Terribly distressing news. Linda, please reconsidering reporting such distressing news on your blog. I feel for those who have to live in Nigeria in these times, I can't even imagine the amount of stress ppl have on them no wonder so many diseases on ppl in these days.

Don"t be tribalistic. It"s happening everywhere ,It is only God tht can save us in dis end time.Police are yet to conclude cynthia's own. At least a brutal nd merciless example must be shown to dis killers so as to check their remains out there.

@anonymous, August 29, 2012 4:11 PM. You mad? the guy is right you fool. they should ship you people out of Nigeria. Dakobo or waiting dem dey call your leader should move you people out of nigeria. go to Biafra country or Cameroon. I don't know why Gowon stopped you bastards Igbos from not going out of 9ja. You people should go.....Go out of Nigeria ibo Go out. go out as Ghana did a while ago. use Ghana must go to pack your loads out of Lagos and other parts of nigeria .....Leave the people of Oduduwa alone with their Fatherland.

See all these igbo pple still dey talk! Una no get shame sef. Instead of una to call meeting and speak to urselves, una dey here dey argue. Even in Ghana, they have started differentiating IGBOS from NIGERIANS. Linda u go try if you think say I dey lie. When I told som1 I'm frm naija, he asked "are u igbo?" I said no. He said "if you're igbo pls get out from here. I don't want wahala". Image wey dey smell like rotten meat. Talk to yourselves and stop all the unnecessary defence. Cos if na anoda tribe dey slaughter pple like dis, una go yab dem tire.

The thirteen robbers disturbing my estate were sent packing by force. Since dem comot, daily robbery with okada stop. Estate don quiet. Wetin sef! Na only una like money? *spits*

The 1st person that started Nigerian Government fought tooth and nail for unity .. Before the so called Hausas spoiled everything ..if we can stop critisim and blames !! Things would get better.. NOTE: I'm not justifying What the did is wrong .. And for the record ikwo in Ebonyi state is still at village war with Ezza and the mgbo people .. Ezillo is a no go area .. Linda spread your tentacules and research more ..if you have tym anyway..lol

Why are we acting shocked! Shouldn't we expect worse with the present culture of greed and ignorance in Nigeria? It was just a matter time. Now we are experiencing so much evil on our soil; the types of things we used watch on cable TV and we wondered what was wrong with the Americans.
If we don't put an end to corruption, greed and ignorance in Nigeria, more evils will happen. You aint seen nothin yet! Will we initiate the change or do we just siddon look?

Anonymous 9:17, i guess it was an igbo boy dat beheaded his neighbour's son in order to sell his parts 4 200,000, or wasnt it a yoruba woman that poisoned her son bcos she wants to please her husband? Or d the guys that kept their brother in his house and were selling his part, were they selling it 4 paper? Useless people dat don't know dat wen u marry a woman u r supposed to take care her dats y their women are always looking so haggard n dirty and u can never guess their age cos a yoruba woman looking 70 is still bearin children( u no go know say na suffer make am b like dat). And as 4 u Timi u no go go make one militant give u belle make u begin dey catch fish de fry garri cos dats d only thing u know( i guess marriage is a taboo in ur place). No wonder as dem remove jona frm fish catching and garri frying he wan finish our money pauper! U wen say we de make fake, u don wear any cloth wen no be aba made? Abi u fit survive without ibo made? At least we make somethin wat does yoruba make? We kill 4 money ok, wat do hausas kill for? Fun.

Linda, I'm sooo disappointed that you are allowing these tribalistic comments on your blog. You are just giving narrow minded and obtuse people a platform to vent their hate. An evil person is an evil person period, whether they are Yoruba, Igbo or Hausa.I implore you to vigilantly screen such detestful posts and not so that your blog does not promote hate.

Timi,I feel so sorry for u! Hope everyone around u (ur gf or wife included - if u even have one) knows how myopic and mediocre u are! Its cos of inferior ppl like u dat nigeria has remained stagnant since independence! Pls crawl back into dat backward,under developed,snake ridden bayelsa state and shut ur trap in d process! Aturu bayelsa!

I am so disappointed with you, Linda for allowing all these vile comments on here. Or do we believe that all you care about is to get so many comments on a page? When a post attracts so much tribal hate, you should be wise enough to take it down or screen the replies.
