PORT HARCOURT—The body parts of eight-year-old Chikamso Nmezuwuba, were admitted as exhibit by the State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, in the trial of suspected child killer, Ifeanyi Dike.

Ifeanyi Dike allegedly raped and murdered his cousin for rituals.

Trial judge, Justice Adolphous Emeneli, at yesterday’s hearing, admitted the exhibit against objection by the defense counsel as Police prosecutor, Sergeant Blessing Oheyen, tendered the body parts.

The prosecutor told the court that the accused led the Police to his home after obtaining his statement, when he was turned in by vigilante in Port Harcourt, who allegedly apprehended him with a sack containing Chikamso’s remains.

Justice Enebeli adjourned till March 8 for continuation.
