Motorcyclist sells nurse to ritual killers for N10,000

A commercial motorcyclist, identified simply as Ifeanyi, has been arrested for allegedly handing over a nurse, Mrs. Helen Ilonge (picture above), to ritual killers after collecting N10, 000.

Punch Metro learnt that Ilonge had on Tuesday last week took Ifeanyi’s motorcycle on her way to Igoli along the Ogoja-Ikom Highway in Ogoja LGA. Ilonge, the coordinator of Primary Health Care in Bekwarra Local Government Area of Cross River State, was coming from a programme at the Assemblies of God Church, Abakaliki in Ebonyi State, and had alighted from a vehicle at Okpongrinya junction before taking the bike.

It was gathered that Ilonge (51) was beheaded while her other vital reproductive parts such as breast and vagina were removed for ritual purposes.

 Ilonge’s neighbour, Mrs. Theresa Idagwu, on Sunday said, “Ifeanyi took the lady from Okpogrinya Junction on the pretence that he was taking her to the village, which is 10 minutes drive from the point. But along the way, he stopped and handed her over to kidnappers at Ukpe. Meanwhile, the woman had called her daughter, Victoria, around 9pm that she had taken a bike at Okpogrinya Junction on her way to Igoli.

She said when she gets to her destination; she would call again so that Victoria would boil water for her to take her bath. That was Ilonge’s last call.” Repeated calls made to the woman’s line, according to Idagwu, indicated that it was switched off. She said Ilonge’s family became worried when the woman did not return home. “We went everywhere- police stations, hospitals and even her friends in Igoli, thinking that may be an accident had occurred along the road but we got nothing,” Idagwu added. Two days later, Idagwu said someone called Victoria on her phone and informed her that her mother had been kidnapped. The caller demanded a ransom of N50, 000 to be remitted in form of recharge cards.

She said, “Since her daughter could not raise the money, she rushed to the Bekwarra LGA headquarters where the head of administration, Mr. Bisong Bogbo, and the chairman, Mr. Linus Edeh, provided the money with which she bought recharge cards and sent to the caller. “The voice claimed that he needed the recharge cards so he could sell and run away from his master who is a ritual killer. He claimed that he had been serving his master for a long time and wanted to run away. He said once he gets the cards, he will break the door where the nurse is being kept and release her.” The LGA’s head of administration, Bogbo, confirmed that the cards were sent to the kidnapper through Victoria’s telephone.

He said immediately the alleged kidnapper confirmed receipt of the cards; he switched off his telephone. Luck, however, ran out of Ifeanyi. Policemen tracked his telephone line and discovered that he called Victoria from Abuochiche. Further investigations, it was gathered, showed that Ifeanyi had been selling the cards in the village immediately he got them. When he was arrested, Bogbo told our correspondent that Ifeanyi led the police to one of the ritual killers identified simply as Elvis. Elvis, according to Bogbo, confessed that the nurse had already been killed and some of her vital organs removed before Ifeanyi asked for the recharge cards. Elvis also said the remains of the woman were buried in a swamp. At the council headquarters, one of the late nurse’s colleagues, Mr. Gabriel Ogar, said she was probably the kindest woman he ever worked with.

Ogar said, “I have worked with five coordinators, but I know that she is just the best so far. She worked to the admiration of Governor Liyel Imoke and now she has been killed leaving her five children without a helper. “Her husband died 12 years ago and since then she has been the one taking care of the children and only one has graduated. Please let the government do something for those poor children.” When contacted on Monday, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Osita Ezechukwu, said the police were still investigating the matter. He said four suspects had been apprehended by the anti-homicide unit, adding that when the investigation was completed the suspects would be prosecuted. “We have taken confessional statement from them. Those who are not involved have been allowed to go while those who are involved are still in detention,” Ezechukwu said.

A woman providing such vital services to the community sniffed out over 10k and Recharge cards in exchange for a paltry fee..bet she would have given him that money..
I hope they ban them all over the country..most are robbers..vehicles for ritualists..and the reckless driving nko??

Trust me, give these guys a death sentence and sign the death warrant and you will see Amnesty/human rights etc from abroad will say no to death sentence. May be we should allow the killers to be free to practice what they were born with just like the GAYS.

Its sad. We all have to join the fight against poverty in our land by seeing to it that there is respect for hard work and realising there's dignity in labour. I believe also that as citizens of this great country, we should see how we go back to the era where agriculture ruled the economy. And pls, stop condemning Nigeria cos ur equally condemning urself. There is still some good in Nigeria and if u don't believe me, just look at urself. If u believe there's some good in you, then truly there is some good in Nigeria.

If we must say the truth, this all goes back to d government, they have failed again like they failed in the Aluu Issue. The government keeps subjecting its people to ridiculous act which leads to unimaginable death. We might say 10,000k????? But to dat fool "bike man" it’s like a million dollar to him meaning …...E Don Hammer..., or is it the Aluites where they had to form a vigilante group with bunch of illiterates, why won’t they? When d police has never ever been to their aid and they r practically energetic and jobless at the same time… who does vigilante at this age??? “Losing hope in the police is… building an enormous fence around your house sometimes higher than the house itself, getting a guard, having Dogs for watchkeeping n not pets and getting a Gun in ur shelf … just like the rich men does” if I may ask what is losing hope of the police to the poor???? To me I think its everyday for the thief and one day for jungle justice…. Or do we think if the brutal killers of this mother “May her soul rest in peace” were to be caught by locals they wouldn’t have been ALUUED?? These n more to come r the extent of poverty caused by a governmental system that has not worked & is not working. We might feel good cos u have a reasonable life with reasonable pay n think it doesn't concern you if they barn okada "ofcourse u have a car" of if the goverment break peoples homes "ofcourse u stay in a GRA" or tk pples labour in vain "ofcourse u work with a private firm" or make minimum wage 15k "ofcourse u earn 200-500k". but when these so called poor has absolutely nothing to live for, getting a three square meal offer will be worth 2x ur rich head and then it all falls back to YOU N I…So ma point is... DO NOT THINK YOU SHOULDNT STAND UP FOR WHAT U THINK IS RIGHT OR ACCEPT WRONG ANG INHUMAN DECISIONS MADE BY THE GOVERNMENT COS IT DOESN'T AFFECT YOU DIRECTLY... It someday will indirectly. so we the average Nigerians need to stand up n face the government when they make decisions weather it affects u or not and trust me the poor will be directly behind u, n we will outnumber and win the race.
A Quick Advice to the people;
Don’t be blessed by God with an average n comfortable life n work ur lyf out doing wat ever it takes to get as rich as OBASANJO or BABANGIDA and Co. Cos u never will… except u ready to do what they have done i.e Blow up an entire community, put 9igeria in darkness cos the oil money is paying up fine e.t.c…

A Quick Advice for the government; *If they ever have the tym to read blogs or even see d news*
A wise man once said, the easiest people to govern are a society of literates. Not a society with over 50% facing abject poverty. U gat a lottttttttttt of English to speak. *Think About it*
