Two male suspects who inserted substance into the private part of one Ruth Tamuno, have been arrested by the police in Rivers State on Monday, November 14.
According to a statement signed by it’s the state’s police spokesperson, SP Grace Irenge-Koko, the suspects, numbering about six, beat up the victim who they alleged stole an iPhone and inserted the substance as a punitive measure.
“CP Okon Effiong has ordered the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) to conduct a discreet investigation on one Samuel Matthew ‘m’ aged 23years and Emmanuel Iweruma ‘m’ aged 23years, 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.”
