Court Discharge Four People That Police Arrested In Portharcout

A Magistrate’s Court sitting in Port Harcourt on Wednesday discharged four persons whom the police arrested alongside Chima Ikwunado, a mechanic who died in police custody in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The four persons were acquitted following the report of the Department of Public Prosecution, which revealed that the suspects had no case to answer.

The PUNCH had reported that the four persons identified as Victor Ogbonna, Friday Osaze, Ifeanyi Osuji and Ifeanyi Onyewere were arrested together with Chima Ikwunado for alleged robbery cultism, but were later arraigned after Ikwunado’s unexpected death in police cell.

The four persons were earlier remanded at the Port Harcourt Correctional Service Centre, but regained their freedom.
