A student of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) in Rivers State Justina Otuene has been found dead at her lover’s home.
The lover of the 300-level undergraduate of the Department of Biological Chemistry, Collins, has been arrested.
Ms Nkang’s remains were found at her lover’s residence along NTA Road, Mgbuoba in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.
She was reported missing four days ago.
Nkang was said to be undergoing her industrial training attachment at a popular private hospital located in the D/Line axis of Port Harcourt, where she was last seen.
Reports said Nkang’s body was found mutilated as her breasts and eyes were missing.
A source quoted by PUNCH said that after carrying out the alleged murder the suspect “kept her body in his apartment for three days and just when he wanted to dispose her corpse in refuse dump, a vigilante group in the area accosted him, leading to his arrest.”
Commissioner of police Emeka Nwaonyi is expected to address the public on the matter on Thursday.
