A Nigerian student who allegedly killed a 7-year-old girl for ritual purposes has been apprehended by by security operatives in Rivers state.

The young man, a 200-level student of the the Faculty of Science, University of Port Harcout, who has been identified as Ifeanyi Dike, was arrested for killing the girl named Victory Chikamso.

It was gathered that the Imo State indigene invited Chikamso into his room, killed her and collected the part he needed, while the girl’s parents were looking for her.

Luck, however, ran out on him, when he was going to throw her corpse away.

Sanitation officers at the refuse dump he went to, confronted him and searched him only to discover a dead body butchered. They raise alarm and behold it was that of missing Chikamso.
