Family of Slain Uniport Student Demands Justice

Also, the management of the institution said it would not rest until justice is done on the matter.

The family of Justina Otuene, the Slain female student of Biochemistry at the University of Port Harcourt, has called for justice.

Otuene was allegedly killed by her boyfriend at his residence in Ozuoba in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

It would be recalled that the police had on Thursday paraded one Damian Chinemere, a 400-level student of Petrochemical Engineering of the same university who was apprehended in connection with the heinous crime.

But fielding questions from Journalists in Port Harcourt, the Elder brother of the deceased, Osas Otuene said the family is highly devastated by the news of her death.

Osas, who is also a 500-level undergraduate of Chemical Engineering at the institution said his late sister recently turned 21.

While applauding the police for their efforts in arresting the suspect, he said all the family wants is justice for his late sister.

He stated, “On Wednesday we got a call from someone that a dead body was reported at the Ozuoba Police Station that we should go there.

“So I reported to the Investigating Police Officer at Mini-okoro Police Station and together with some of my relatives we went with the Ozuoba Police Station and met the police officer there who confirmed the corpse.

“All we need is justice. Let the law take its course on the guy who did this to my sister and everyone else who is involved in this heinous crime because he was not working alone.

“She was the only daughter of the family, my dad is late. My mum is alive but she is distraught right now. So it is a hard one on us.”
