Rivers state Police command says it has arrested three persons in connection to the Murder of one Miss Charity Ohaka Who was murdered and dumped inside a well in the Rumuosi area in Obio/Akpor Local government area in the state.
The police public relations Officer Nnamdi Omoni told our correspondent that the 3 persons arrested are in their custody and helping police with investigations.
He said the body of the late Charity Ohaka has been deposited at the Mortuary for an autopsy to unravel what method of death was used by her killers to snuff life out of the young woman found in the well.
Omoni Said police has restored normalcy as boys from Ogbakiri in Emuoha local government invaded Rumuosi for a reprisal attack to avenge the death of their kinsman but that the Choba Divisional police swiftly intervened and restored things to normal.
He urged residents of the area and the student community to go about their lawful duties as normalcy has returned to the area
Recall that CHARITY OHAKA from Okporowo Ogbakiri, Emuoha LGA of Rivers State up until her early death lived in Rumuosi Town but was last week Thursday/Friday reported that she was kidnapped from her 1 bedroom/toilet apartment.
uncertainty set the atmosphere on Sunday evening when neighbors complained of foul smell emanating from the well, other neighbors also told our correspondent that the water from the well became toxic and had oily substance floating on it each time they draw water from the well and only agreed to get a diver to check if some reptile died inside the well water which has been serving the whole compound.
The residents of the area said they suspected that something abnormal had occurred and decided to inform the police and local vigilantes together they brought a diver who went inside the well but saw nothing until a Hausa man volunteered to enter inside the well after making some incantations.
Worthy of note is that the first diver was from the local community he claimed he found nothing until it was discovered on Monday that the reported missing body of a beautiful, hardworking woman who deals on money lending popularly known as Akawo was the result of the fermented well water.
Eye witnesses said She was killed, tied with heavy block and thrown into the Well close to her house.
the Neighbors also noted that her ceiling was broken raising suspicion that the suspects/killers passed through the ceiling into her apartment.
Event took another turn yesterday when youths from Ogbakiri who came in search of charity Ohaka took to the streets and started destroying people’s properties at far away Rumuosi junction to the extent of damaging properties, cars, looting shops and super Markets of innocent Rivers people who actually don’t know what was happening.
security agencies though had assured that the situation has been brought under control many residents of the area still believe the yet is not over.
