Damian Okoligwe, a student at the University of Port Harcourt, is vehemently denying any involvement in the tragic death of his 20-year-old girlfriend, Justina Otuene.

The shocking incident has left the community in disbelief and raised questions about the circumstances surrounding the young woman’s demise.

During an interview at the Command Headquarters of the Rivers State Police Command in Port Harcourt, Okoligwe expressed his innocence, recounting the events leading up to the discovery of his girlfriend’s lifeless body.

He claimed that he was sick when Justina visited his home and that he found her unresponsive when he woke up.

He also stated that he sought medical treatment at his brother’s house and returned three days later to discover Justina’s lifeless body.

Okoligwe firmly denied any involvement in organ harvesting, asserting that her remains were intact.

He shared,

“I was very sick that morning, and when I went to the room to check on her, she was still sleeping. I went back to the parlor because I was very sick. I was calling her, but she was not responding. I had to go back to check on her.”

“I went to check on her; she was not moving at all. She was very stiff and strong. After that, I did not know what to do, I had to carry her body into another room, and then I called my brother to come to my place.”

Justina’s elder brother, John Otuene, is determined to seek justice for his sister.

He described how the family received a call about a deceased person reported at Ozuoba Police Station and emphasized the need for a thorough investigation.

“I need justice. The guy that did it should pay for it, and everybody that was involved, because definitely, he was not the only one that was involved. Justice is what we need,” he asserted.
