Family Of Elozino Joshuana Ogege Killed For Ritual Purposes Calls On Nigerians
The family of Elozino Joshuana Ogege (a 300 level student of Mass Communication, Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka) who was gruesomely murdered four days after she was declared missing in November 2018 are still heartbroken and more so because of the way the case is being handled by the Justice system.
She was murdered by internet fraudsters otherwise known as ‘Yahoo boys’ who abducted her for ritual purpose with the support of a security staff, Onos Ekana, who worked in Site III of the University campus.Her corpse was found buried in a bushy area in Umege.
The security man confessed to the crime and revealed those also involved after severe interrogations at the State CID. His Confession led to the arrest of two other suspects who are said to be ‘Yahoo Boys’ who reside in Umege, a settlement in Abraka.
According to Comr. Obawharievbo Onajite, despite the arrests of the suspects involved in the crime, justice is not being served as the family of the deceased are still in deep pain. It was learnt that on the 18th of March 2019 in high court 1 Asaba, one of the culprits, a sister to the killer who was indicted in the murder was set free by the Judicial head of the state on the grounds of Nolle Proseque claiming she’s a minor.
The family of the deceased are not happy with this development as they are afraid that at the next court sitting, another accused will be set free by the court as they feel there’s power from above involved in setting the culprits free.
The family is calling for the support and presence of the general public at high court 1 Asaba on Wednesday 17 April by 9am, to rally around for justice to prevail.
