Police arrest killers of Enugu deputy gov’s orderly


 
 
 
 
The police have apprehended suspected gunmen who killed a police orderly attached to Enugu State Deputy Governor, Mrs Cecelia Ezeilo.

The orderly, Sergeant Helen Sunday, was killed in the Trans Ekulu area of Enugu last week Tuesday.

The spokesman, Enugu State Police Command, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, in a statement made available to journalists, said two suspects, identified as Emmanuel Onyeabor and Kanu Oti, had been arrested for the crime.

He alleged that Onyeabor and Oti were arrested after exchanging gunfire with police operatives at their hideouts in the Lomalinda and Amorji-Nike areas.

Amaraizu said the suspects sustained injuries in the shoot-out.

He, however, said other members of the killer gang fled the hideouts.

Some of the fleeing hoodlums sustained gunshot wounds in the encounter with the police, Amaraizu added.

He urged members of the public to report anybody seen with bullet wounds.

“Emmanuel Onyeabor and Kanu Oti were arrested at their various hideouts in Lomalinda, Independence Layout area, and Amorji-Nike area of Abakpa, after a gun duel.

“Some of the gang members escaped with wounds. The command is requesting information from members of the public and hospital operators concerning anyone with injuries suspected to be bullet wounds,” Amaraizu said.

He further revealed that a phone said to belong to the deputy governor’s orderly was recovered from the suspects.

Amaraizu added that the suspects confessed that they only meant to rob the policewoman, but ended up killing her when she resisted their attempt to dispossess her of her valuables.
