Suspects involved in the killing of a retired Police Chief, Chris Kpatuma, and Nollywood actress, Mary Ngozi, both in Delta State, have been nabbed.

This was revealed by the Delta State Police Command in a statement issued on the killings and other crimes on Wednesday.

According to the Command, Chikwudi Emerenin, 27, was arrested on February 2, 2022 by operatives of the Command while acting on intelligence gathered that he and his gang were hibernating somewhere in Aboh in Ndokwa East Local Government Area.

Emerenin, an escapee from Owerri prison, was arrested on at about 9pm and he is suspected to be part of the syndicate that killed Kpatuma in Agwa clan, Oguta Local Government Area of Imo State.

He told the police he is related to the late police officer and that the leader of the gang is called Mega Bush.

The suspect also revealed that the late officer was killed because he was a strong stakeholder and a titled man in the community and owing to the fact that he was a retired Police Officer, they saw him as a threat to their Biafra struggle, hence they decided to kill him.

Emerenin is also suspected to be part of the syndicate that beheaded a vigilante member in Owerri and used his head as ball some time ago.

On February 14, 2022, at about 4:40pm, a distress call was received by the Divisional Police Officer of Owa-Oyibu that some suspects who robbed and shot some PoS operators at Efeizomor Street, near Pekky Hotel in Owa-Oyibo have been arrested and that they are being lynched by an angry mob.

Police Patrol teams were quickly mobilised to the scene, where the two male suspects, namely: Onyeka Ifeanyi, 19, of 10, Ije Street, Agbor, and Bright Michael Kester, 20, of 5, Imudia Street, Agbor, were rescued from the mob and brought to the station.

One cut-to-size double barrel gun was recovered from them.

Upon interrogation, they confessed to have robbed several PoS operators and also confessed that their gang members were responsible for the robbery and murder of Ngozi, a PoS operator and Nollywood actress at Deeper Life Road on December 7, 2021.

Kester was taken to General Hospital for treatment due to injuries sustained from the mob attack, but gave up the ghost while receiving treatment.
