How 24 yrs old female accountant was killed by ritualists in Port Harcourt

Pa Kalu Elem Okore and his wife, Angelina, have remained inconsolable since their 24-year-old daughter, Miss Anita Oluchi Okore, was killed in Port Harcourt, Rivers State by three men believed to be ritualists.
The unfortunate lady met her untimely and gruesome end when she travelled from Abakaliki, Ebonyi State to the Garden City to visit her elder sister, Dr Mrs Ugochi Igwe, in April 2015.
Based on information pieced together by her father, Pa Kalu, Sunday Sun gathered that after the young lady alighted from the bus somewhere along the East-West road, Eleme, Port Harcourt, she called her father and informed him that she had arrived the city and was about to take a taxi to her sister’s place. Oluchi flagged down a taxi, told the driver her destination and boarded. Three other men were also in the taxi.
They had just driven some distance when she noticed that something was wrong. The strange attitude of the three occupants of the taxi made her uncomfortable and she sensed danger. Her fear became real when the taxi suddenly veered off her route and headed to direction she did not know. Then it dawned on her that there was trouble. She quickly put a call across to her father, informing him of the situation. As Pa Kalu told Sunday Sun, the frightened young lady said: “Daddy, I don’t know where the taxi I entered is taking me to.”
She pleaded with the people to let her go and even passed her phone to them to listen to her father’s pleas to them to spare her, promising to pay ransom. The abductors were said to have told Pa Kalu that giving them money could not solve the problem and brusquely returned the phone to Oluchi, who continued to plead for her life as her father listened on the open line. After a short while the phone went dead, and that was the last time Pa Okore heard the voice of his lovely daughter. Hours rolled into days and then weeks, yet no call came from her or the abductors. The family organized a search and also reported the matter to the police, the State Security Service (SSS) and the Directorate of Military Intelligence (DMI), in Port Harcourt.
Before the discovery of the victims remains, the combined team of the SSS and DMI working on the belief that the victim could probably had been abducted by ritualists given that they did not contact the family, obtained and reviewed the central call log of MTN GSM network. Through the review, the investigating team found out the location of Oluchi’s last call. The effort paid off as three of the ritualists were arrested in a hotel, where they were enjoying the N1.5 million their clients paid for the body parts they procured for them. The culprits then led security operatives to where they dumped what remained of Oluchi’s body after cutting out vital organs.
Oluchi was buried on Thursday, May 7th, 2015, in Eziobasi, Amodu Ututu, in Arochukwu LGA of Abia State, after a funeral service held at the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, Umule Parish, Aba.
