Rivers court remands man and alleged side chic for attempted murder of his wife

In connection with the attempted murder of Chima Amadi’s wife, Nwakaego Leticia Chima, a Chief Magistrate Court in Rivers State remanded him and his alleged lover, Orluchi Chima, to the Port Harcourt Correctional Facility.

Amadi, 40, and Orluchi, 22, are charged with causing serious bodily harm to Leticia, 40, on August 15,2022, in Omerelu, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Port Harcourt.

On Monday, September 5, 2022, the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) submitted a remand order to the court.

As no charge was presented to the accused, no plea was accepted.

The defendants’ potential arraignment on the counts the court has authority over has been postponed until September 23, according to Chief Magistrate Oguguo.

The suspects were arrested by Elele Police Division and later transferred to State CIID, Port Harcourt.

Amadi had maintained that the woman he brought home was not his female lover, but his second wife.

The victim’s elder brother, Warisi Anayo, had accused his sister’s husband and the female lover of inflicting machete cuts on her.

The victim, who is recuperating from severe wounds she sustained during the attack, is still admitted at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital (UPTH), Choba.
