Pastor’s wife abducted, raped to death in Rivers


Criminals suspected to be members of Iceland cult groups kidnapped and raped one Mrs. Chigbewejim to death just hours after she was abducted from her Abarikpo community in Rivers State’s Ahoada East Local Government Area.

The mother of two was kidnapped in the early hours of Sunday, February 12, 2023, and later found dead.

Mrs Lawyer was abducted around 1am and later found dead around 10am in Abarikpo with multiple injuries and blood in her private part.

In an interview with journalists, Pastor Lawyer Steward, an Assistant Pastor in Seventh Day Adventist Abarikpo, who is the husband to the raped victim said

“I am the husband of the late Chigbejim Lawyer, who was murdered by some group of boys after raping her.

“I am not a cultist; I am an Assistant Pastor in charge of Evangelism in Seventh Day Adventist Church Abarikpo. Everybody in my community knows I am not a cultist.

“She gave birth to three children, one is late. The surviving ones are aged seven, a female and the male aged three years.

“I am telling the Government that those who murdered my wife should be brought to justice. Though one Aka Sunday, a Cultist claimed he slaughtered my wife, that my wife talked against him, that people told him my wife always talked against him. The said Sunday is a cultist that is the reason he murdered her.”

Mr Steward also told our reporter that officers of Ahoada Police Division in Ahoada town led by the DPO visited the scene on Sunday evening.

In an interview with journalists, Mr Ekeakita Hector Chinem, Public Relations Officer of Igbu Akoh Clan Youth Congress, Ahoada East LGA confirmed the abduction and rape of the married woman to death.

“We have been having a series of killings in Akoh. When they kill nobody goes after the bad boys. No security people go after the bad boys. No Political leaders go after the issue. People are afraid. Whether you report or not what will happen will happen.

“So, people are living in fear. The killing of the woman is not cult related because she is a married woman. Late last year we witnessed eleven killings in that community. The eleven killings last year, a member of one of the cult groups went to their camp and collected the AK 47 of their master and ran away to their community at Abarikpo.

“Only for the cult leader to send his boys to waste eleven innocent lives and till today no Investigation, no action was taken by the Police, nothing.”

Residents of the community are said to be living in fear due to the havoc of the suspected Cultists who rape and kill at without challenge from the community or security agencies.

Meanwhile, Centre for Basic Rights Protection and Accountability Campaign has condemned the abduction and rape to death of Mrs Lawyer.

Prince Wiro, National Coordinator of the group called on the Police to ensure the full weight of is brought on the perpetrators.

Recall that a suspected notorious Iceland cultist, James Bright aka Borokiri was gunned down in exchange of gunfire with the Police on December 15,2022.

At the time of filing this report, the Police Superintendent, Iringe-Koko is yet to react to the incident.
