The Rivers police command said its operatives have arrested two male suspects who inserted substance into the private part of a lady identified as Ruth Tamuno, Monday, November 14.
The police, in a statement signed by its Spokesperson, SP Grace Irenge-Koko, alleged that the suspects, numbering about six, beat up the victim who they allegedly stole an iPhone from and inserted the substance as a punitive measure.
The statement disclosed that, “CP Okon Effiong, has ordered the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), to conduct a discreet investigation on one Samuel Matthew ‘m’ aged 23 years and Emmanuel Iweruma ‘m’ aged 23 years, who was arrested in connection with the case while efforts are on to arrest other fleeing suspects.
“CP Okon reiterated that no matter the circumstances, resorting to self-help to carry out such activities without recourse to extant laws and the Administration of Criminal Justice Act, is totally condemnable and tantamount to a violation of the law.
“CP Okon urged citizens of the State to always be law-abiding and not to take laws into their hands and they should also assist the Police in the fight against criminals and their activities in the State.”Follow us on social media
