Rivers State Police says the Police are on top of the situation as regards the recent serial killing of young women in the state. Deputy Commissioner of Police in the state Chucks Enwonwu made this known on Friday while addressing a group of “Concerned Ladies” who marched to the Police Headquarters to submit a petition to the Commissioner of Police Mustapha Dandura.
The protesters led by Soibi Ibibo-Jack want the Police to act fast in apprehending and prosecuting the suspected serial killers.
The Deputy Commissioner revealed that some suspects connected to the case have been arrested.
“Police have received several complains on this serial killing of women”, said Enwonwu. “We are not resting on our oars, we have been working tirelessly to apprehend the culprits.”
“We have cheering news that we have already made some arrests and like you requested, at the end of the day based on the investigations, if they are found culpable, there’s no escape route for them.”
“The long arm of the law will definitely take its course, that’s the assurance the CP said I should give you.”
Earlier in her remark, leader of the Concerned Ladies, Soibi Ibibo-Jack called on the Force to apprehend and make known the identity of the culprit(s), ensuring that they face the full wrath of the law no matter how who they are.
“As young girls, we are concerned about this serial killer on the loose in Rivers State. We want to feel safe, we want to go out and come back without any fear that it might be the last time our parents and husbands will see.”
“While we acknowledge that the Police are doing what they can do, we still are coming to pressure the Police to please put in more effort so that the serial killer(s) will be caught.”
“And not only caught but also named and shamed. The Police make sure the person faces the full arm of the law, the law should come down on him no matter who he is”, stressed Soibi.
