By Johnson Atoukudu:

The Inspector General of Police and the Chairman of the Police Service Commission have received a petition from the Delta State Coalition of Civil Society Organisations.

The petition concerns the case of Promise Nwaigbo, a woman, and her six-year-old child, whose whereabouts have remained unknown in the state. Titled “An open letter to the Inspector General of Police and Chairman of Police Service Commission on bias by AIG Zone 5 Benin City and Anti-Vice Department,”

The petition was submitted by Victor Ojei, the spokesperson for the CSO. According to Ojei, Nwaigbo, who was a victim of human trafficking, is believed to have been murdered.

Ojei said, “The same people who committed a crime are the same people who ran to the AIG Zone 5 for help. We must ensure that the world becomes aware of the actions taken by the AIG and the potential consequences for the pursuit of justice in this matter.

“We diligently gathered regarding this case, the attempts to undermine the investigation and release the suspects. I am writing to bring to your attention a grave incident of human trafficking and murder that occurred in Ibusa, in the Oshimili North Local Government Area of Delta State.

“The incident involves Miss Promise Nwaigbo, a young mother and a six-year-old child, who has gone missing under suspicious circumstances and is believed to have been a victim of heinous crimes committed by one Chibuzor, Okechukwu, and Chinwendu.”

According to Ojei, in April 2023, Nwaigbo confided in her roommate about her intention to meet someone she knew at a hotel located in the Ibusa community. To reach the designated meeting spot with a 36-year-old individual named Chibuzor, she enlisted the services of a motorbike taxi driver named Dozie Ezeh.

He said, “However when her roommate realised that Nwaigbo had not returned after a few hours, they initiated a search. During the investigation, it was discovered that the prime suspect, Chibuzor, left the hotel with Nwaigbo and her six-year-old child.”

Ojei clarified that initially, the owner and manager of the hotel in Ibusa were detained by the Ibusa Police Station. However, subsequent investigations revealed their innocence in relation to the disappearance of the victims.

According to Ojei, the case was subsequently transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department on May 2, 2023. He mentioned that during the ongoing investigation, a breastfeeding mother arrived at the same hotel with her baby and was waiting for someone.

Ojei explained that the hotel manager became suspicious because he noticed a similar pattern that had led to the disappearance of Nwaigbo and her child. Acting promptly, the hotel manager alerted the police and the local community. Consequently, the suspect was apprehended.

Following the arrest, a search was conducted at the suspect’s residence, where Nwaigbo’s phone and her flashlight were discovered. These findings were corroborated by the victim’s roommate, Igbe Uche.
