Police detectives attached to the Anambra State Police Command working in conjunction with the Umuoji vigilante security network have apprehended the suspected killers of the community’s town union president-general, Mr Silas Onyima.

The PG of the community was murdered in his home recently.

Our correspondent gathered that four suspects were arrested following the discovery of the handset and the automated teller machine card of the deceased with them.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, said the suspects confessed to the crime, and also “named four other accomplices who are now being hunted for by the police”.

Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, has commended the police in Ogidi and Umuoji vigilantes for working together to apprehend the suspected perpetrators.

He directed the state Criminal Investigation Department to deploy its forensic team to the scene of crime and take over the investigation.

He also mandated the Homicide Team in state CID to apprehend the four accomplices still on the run and unravel the motive behind the gruesome crime.

CP Adeoye assured presidents-general across the state that their safety was of primary concerns to the police as “they represent their people in governance by their town unions”.
