Gov Amaechi's Cousin Butchered To Death In Port Harcourt

Rivers State Governor, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi's cousin, Mr. Sabinus Ordu, has reportedly been murdered at his hometown, Ubima in Ikwerre local government area of the state.

Ordu, who was the vice principal of Community Secondary School, Aluu, also in Ikwerre local government area, was said to have been cut with machete last Monday when he went to inspect his traps in the bush at Ubima on return from school.

The state commissioner for Information and Communications, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, who disclosed this to journalists in Port Harcourt  Friday, said the mutilated body was discovered on the same Monday night by a search party set up by the villagers.

Semenitari stated that the murder has been reported to the Elele Police Division, while the corpse of the governor's cousin has been deposited at a private mortuary.

According to Semenitari, "Late Mr. Sabinus Ordu, who is an uncle (actually a senior cousin because they share same grand father) to Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi, returned home in the afternoon from CSS, Aluu where he  is the vice principal and told the boy staying with him that he was going into the bush to check his traps.

"He then mounted his motorcycle and left for the bush but did not return until it was night. At about 8.00pm, the boy raised an alarm which attracted the villagers. A search party was sent to look for him.

"The search party on their way into the bush saw the victim's motorcycle by the bush path, and went into the bush where they found his lifeless body, mutilated with several machete cuts. The matter has been reported to the Police at Elele while the body has been deposited at the morgue."
