According to new report, Dakuku Peterside, the Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency, NIMASA, has offered to pay N500,000 to anyone with useful information that would lead to the rearrest of the UNIPORT undergraduate, Ifeanyi Dike pictured above, who raped, murdered and cut off vital organs from eight year old girl, Chikamso, in Rivers state last Saturday.
Recall that the murderer who was arrested while trying to dispose of Chikamso’s body after killing her, reportedy escaped from police custody on Sunday night and has since not been found.
The NIMASA boss, who is from Rivers state and also a former gubernatorial candidate in the state, in a statement issued by his media department, expressed sadness over the death of the little girl and condemned the escape of the suspect from custody. His statement in part reads;
“We must all rise and condemn this heinous crime. What could an eight-year-old girl have done to deserve this wicked act? What kind of future are we trying to give our children? Are we trying to say that our girls are no longer safe? Are we saying that our girls do not have a future? Without women, we have no future. The onslaught on girls and women is becoming increasingly disturbing. We must protect our young girls and women. This could have happened to any family. This is deeply saddening. Please, I do not want my action to be seen through a political prism. The dastardly act should be a concern for all of us as Rivers people. Let us join hands with the police and ensure the re-arrest of Ifeanyi Dike”.
