Lady with slain Rivers technician arrested


A lady who was in the car with an automobile technician, John Okon, when he was shot dead on Tuesday along Nanka Street in the Mile 2 axis of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has been arrested.

Speaking to journalists in Port Harcourt on Thursday, the married lady, who pleaded that her identity should not be revealed, denied having any amorous affair with the deceased.

She said, “As I was coming back from the church, I saw him on my way. He asked me where I was going and I told him that I was going home. So he offered to give me a ride and dropped me off at Nanka by Abakaliki in Mile 2.

“Three boys came and one of them pointed a gun at me. One of them moved to the driver’s side and started dragging the car key with him. At that point, they shot him.”

“I don’t have anything to do with him. He was just my neighbour. I am not his girlfriend as people are saying. I am a married woman.”

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Grace Iringe-Koko, said, “She is in our custody. In line with standard procedure, she is a suspect in the incident and the investigation is ongoing.”
