A man simply identi­fied as David who set his lover ablaze over accusations of infidelity has been ap­prehended by operatives of the Rivers State Police Com­mand.
In a statement by the spokesman of the command, Nnamdi Omoni, alleged that David emptied a keg of kero­sene on his lover, Uchechi Okorie and set her ablaze.
He said Uchechi was bad­ly burnt, adding that she was currently being treated at a private hospital.
Omoni also confirmed that the police burst an inter­net and cyber crime syndi­cate who specializes in hack­ing accounts of unsuspecting citizens and robbing them of huge sums of money.
He said the duo of Ste­phen Ikatubo and Michael Basil were arrested after they had successfully with­drawn huge sums of money from a new generation bank in Port Harcourt.
According to Omoni, “the CP Monitoring Unit headed by SP Grace Won­wu and her Team during the week arrested one Da­vid A.
“David inflicted grievous bodily harm on his live –in- lover, one Uchechi Jane Okorie by willfully empty­ing a bottle of kerosene on her and lighting fire, which got her burnt beyond rec­ognition.
“The victim is respond­ing to treatment while the suspect is helping the Police in Investigation and will be due in court soonest.”-The Authority
