Port Harcourt suspected serial killer Gracious David West appeared in a court wearing a ‘5 nights of glory’ tag of Pastor David Ibiyeomie‘s church on Friday.
The picture of Gracious David West wearing a ‘5 nights of glory’ tag to court got tongues wagging for the hearing on the murder case which was stalled due to the absence of Vincent Chuku, David West’s Counsel in court to continue with cross-examination of Prosecution witnesses.
Child Ekeh, State Prosecution Counsel and Lezina Amegwa, Counsel to the 2nd Defendant, Nimi ThankGod, told the court that they tried reaching David West’s Counsel but all their effort proved abortive.
The trial Judge, Justice Adolphus Enebeli, told the court that Vincent Chuku, Counsel to Gracious David West, cannot withdraw from the suit on his own.
The Judge thereby gave an order that hearing notice should be served on Vincent Chuku before the next adjourned date.
Justice Adolphus Enebeli however adjourned the matter to 24th January.
Recall that West, in 2019, was arrested for killing over 15 girls in different hotels in Lagos, Port Harcourt and Owerri. His usual method was to get the girls to his hotel room, threaten them, then tie their hands and legs with clothes before killing them.
He recently identified 7 of his victims in the mortuary.
