The Nigeria Police Force has paraded one Prince Reuben who allegedly connived with three others to kidnap, gang-rape and kill a petty trader, Joy Saturday, to whom he sold a piece of land in Etche Local government area of Rivers state.
Force Public Relations Officer (PPRO), CP Frank Mba paraded Reuben on Thursday before newsmen.
“Prince Reuben who hails from Etche in Rivers State had earlier sold a plot of land to one Joy Saturday, a hardworking mother of four and a petty trader who laboured so hard to put together the first N250, 000 to buy the plot of land.
“Thereafter, he(Reuben) lured this lady, pretending that there is another vacant land for sale.
“Joy Saturday accompanied Reuben to the bush side ostensibly on an inspection. Unknown to this innocent hardworking woman, Reuben had conspired with three other friends of his namely Nwaba, Promise and Chinedu.
“During the inspection tour, Joy was kidnapped by these men. They took her into the forest, gang-raped her, stole the only cash sum she had with her (N20, 000) and then shot her to death. After killing her, they poured acid on her body and then threw it into the forest.
“Nwaba, Chinedu and Promise are currently at large,” Mba said.
The police spokesman urged the public to assist to assist the force with information that could lead to the arrest of the fleeing suspects.
