A somber incident has struck the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) community as Otuene Justina Nkang, a student pursuing Biological Chemistry, was discovered lifeless in her boyfriend’s residence in the capital of Rivers State.
Nkang had gone missing four days after completing her daily responsibilities at a private hospital in Port Harcourt, where she was engaged in her industrial training.
According to reports by Daily Trust, an anonymous source claimed that Nkang’s boyfriend is suspected of taking her life and dismembering her remains.
The young woman had visited her boyfriend in an upscale neighborhood of Port Harcourt. It was the local vigilante group in the vicinity that apprehended the suspect while he was allegedly attempting to dispose of Nkang’s dismembered body parts in a refuse dump.
Vanguard reported that the suspect, identified as Collins, was taken into custody after the estate’s security personnel stumbled upon gruesome sacks containing Justina’s remains.
In response to this horrifying incident, the Public Relations Officer, SP Grace Iringe Koko, confirmed that the Commissioner of Police, Policarp Emeka Nwaonyi, would address the media regarding the case.
In a separate news report, a Mount Kenya University (MKU) student named Job Onyango was suspended after posting a video from the examination room in which he questioned the relevance of the paper to his future success.
He used strong language and criticized the cars in the parking lot, which he claimed belonged to lecturers who serve as role models.
MKU’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Deogratius Jaganyi, clarified that Onyango’s suspension was unrelated to the video he posted.
