The Anambra police command has denied trying to cover up a murder case involving a woman who was arrested for allegedly beating her househelp to death.
The police command in a statement released by its spokeperson Haruna Mohammed, described the allegation made by activist Gwamnishu Emefiena Harrison as false.
Haruna said the 25-year-old woman identified as Madam Nmesoma Okafor, is still in police custody and would be charged to court on Monday 15/3/2021 after an autopsy has been conducted.
The statement read;
The attention of the Anambra State Police Command has been drawn to a misleading report on Instagram credited to one Gwamnishu Emefiena Harrison that Police have refused to charge to Court one Madam Nmesoma Okafor ‘f’ aged 25years of Nkpor in Idemili North LGA of Anambra State over alleged torture and murder of her teenage house help who died in the hospital while receiving treatment on 16th February,2021.
The report was absolutely false and unfounded.In fact the suspect in question is still in police custody and would be charged to court on monday 15/3/2021 after conducting autopsy.
The Command wondered why the author could not cross check his facts with the police in a sensitive matter such as this before publishing.
In view of the foregoing, the Commissioner of Police *CP Monday Bala Kuryas,fsi* urges the public to disregard the report and further assures them that justice will be served on the matter .
