The enraged nurse said that some vital organs of her niece were missing when she went to the hospital to see her lifeless body.

“My brother’s daughter, Amaechi Iwunze, is a virgin. She was killed for a ritual purpose because her hair and thumbs were missing and her vagina and breasts were tampered with. When I saw her in the hospital, I examined her and discovered that she was killed earlier in the day because she was stiff. Her breasts were compressed and her vagina was tampered with because she was a virgin. We want justice.

The girl’s grandfather who could not withhold his tears said that he was dying because of the incident.

He called on the government and public-spirited individuals to ensure that his family got justice.

The police spokesperson for the command, Micheal Abattam, who confirmed the arrest of the suspects said that command was doing everything possible to ensure that justice was delivered.
