The Inspector General of Police, Muhammed Abubakar says the suspected killers of Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Chinwike Asadu, have been arrested.

Asadu was murdered about three months ago at his Amorji Nike residence in Enugu State.

Briefing  journalists, Wednesday, in Enugu during his official working visit to the state, the IGP said the arms used by the killers during the operation were also recovered by the police.

He said following the confessional statements by the seven persons arrested, the police were on the trail of other collaborators in the murder.

“We have arrested seven of those behind the killing of CP Chinwike Asadu; his killing was indeed a sad incident and that’s why when I visited the family after the incident, I made a promise that we shall stop at nothing to get those behind that dastardly act.

“I am glad to tell Nigerians that of those who took part in the killing, seven have been arrested and arraigned before a court”, he said.

He gave the names of the suspects as Ogechukwu Uzoh, Ogechukwu Nnadi, Ugwuoke Obiora, Okwuosa Anthony, Chukwudi Enete, Davil Elvis Aja and Amobi Nnamchi”.

“These are the seven persons charged for murder; aside the killing of the CP, they also confessed to killing other innocent souls and several acts of criminality”, he added.

The police boss, however declined giving further details on the arrest as well as what could have informed the motive.

On the murder of several policemen by the Ombatse militia group in Nasarawa State, the IGP said the matter was still under serious investigation, stressing that “what happened there is condemnable by any reasonable person. After investigation, we will be able to brief the press adequately.

Earlier, the IGP who commissioned a medical clinic at the Enugu State police headquarters commended the media for their partnership role with the police.
He said several of such clinics were due to be commissioned in the South-East zone of the country.
