Dr. Barine Lenee

Dr. Barine Lenee, the Internal Auditor of Port Harcourt Water Corporation, has been stabbed to death by unknown assailants.

The 41-year-old from Buan Community in Khana Local Government Area of A of Rivers State, is reported to have been killed under controversial circumstances while driving from Uyo, the Akwa-Ibom State capital, to Port Harcourt, on Saturday, September 30.


It was gathered that the Chartered Accountant was stabbed several times along the Trans-Amadi-slaughter area of the city.


His body was found dumped along the road where it was recovered with his car and other belongings except his phone on Sunday, October 1.


Until his death, he was a full-time staff member and Head of the Internal Audit Department/Accountant at the Port Harcourt Water Corporation, Rumuola.


One Karasira Clement Livinus, who confirmed the incident in a Facebook post on Tuesday, October 3, said the deceased was a victim of a failed security and medical system.


“Dr. Lenee Barine, it is sad to say Rest in Peace. Gentle and meek, selfless and dedicated. You became a victim of a failed system. A failed security system, A failed Medical system, A failed government,”
he wrote.


“For security operatives that will never be proactive but demand unprintable things before doing their work, they will be replaced. For business men that call themselves doctors that will demand for money first before saving a life that they swore to, or those that will open hospitals and dump auxiliary nurses without a single doctor- A failed system


“My brother and friend, the Lord will avenge your death. The Lord will look after the young family you left behind and your mum will be strong.
