Attempted murder: Rivers court remands man, lover

A Chief Magistrate Court has remanded two men to the Port Harcourt Correctional Centre over attempted murder of one Leticia Chima, 40, in Omerelu, Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The two suspects, Chima Amadi (male), 40 and Orluchi Chima, (female) 22, were said to have committed the crime on August 15, 2022.

The State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department had brought the case to court in form of remand order on Monday, September 5, 2022.

No plea was taken as no charge(s) were read to the accused.

Chief Magistrate Rita Oguguo adjourned to September 23, 2022 for possible arraignment of the defendants on the charges the court has jurisdiction on.

Recall that Warisi Anayo elder brother to Leticia Chima in an interview with journalists had accused his sister’s spouse and the female lover of using matchete to allegedly cut her severally after his sister asked the husband why he brought his female lover to the house on August 15, 2022.

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

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