The family of a murdered young lady in are in mourning over the death of their 24-year-old daughter
The family of a 24-year-old Accountant who graduated from the department of Banking and Finance at the Abia State University, Anita Oluchi Okore, are still to come to terms with the fact that she is no more after her dismembered body was recovered few days after she was murdered by suspected ritual killers in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
The young lady who worked as an Accountant at Unity FM based in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, according to the family, had gone to visit her older sister whose family lives in Port Harcourt in April, 2015, when she unfortunately ran into the ritualists.
According to her distraught father, Anita had managed to place a call to him when she was in the taxi with the men intimating him of her predicament and had even given the phone to her killers so that they could hear the plea of the old man but all his pleadings fell on deaf ears as they still went ahead to kill her.
From information pieced together by the family, Anita had, on getting to Port Harcourt, boarded a taxi that was supposed to take her to her sister's place, not realising that she was taking a last ride as the men in the taxi turned out to be ritual killers.Her parents, Pa Kalu Elem Okore and Angelina, have remained inconsolable since the death of Anita who was buried on Thursday, May 7, 2015, in Eziobasi, Amodu Ututu, in Arochukwu local government area of Abia State.
But the family could have a little consolation as the Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI), in Port Harcourt and the police, using Anita's call log, had arrested the killers in a hotel where they were lavishing N1.5 million paid by their clients for the body parts of Anita, after weeks of intensive search. The arrested men led the investigating team to the dump site where they kept the body Anita with her vital body organs cut off.
