The people of the Niger Delta have condemned the non-trial of an American citizen who allegedly murdered his Nigerian wife, Mrs. Doris Anasesia Lambert (nee Oaikhena), in Houston, Texas. A statement by Comrade Joseph Evah of the Ijaw Monitoring Group, demanded the trial of the suspect.
“We are worried that the American embassy in Nigeria ignored the father and mother of the dead who suffered depression now resulting to hypertension because of the gruesome killing of their daughter in the US”, the statement said.
“We are aware that Americans are ready to defend the rights of their citizens anywhere in the world with all their strength, the same way Niger Deltans are prepared to defend the rights of their citizens. Therefore, the attitude of the US towards our Uromi, Edo State-born daughter is unacceptable to our people. The gruesome manner Doris was killed with her body found inside the kitchen freezer in their home after two weeks is inhuman and we demand justice for the crime”
