Six suspected killers of a traffic warden in Aba, Emmanuel Nwankwo, who was killed on February 24 while on duty at the popular Brass Junction, have been paraded by the Abia State Police Command.
The suspects are Chisom Solomon, 17; Temple Ikpeazu , 21; and Justice Wisdom,19; Nwabueze, 21; Jacob Orji, 17; and Uche Jumbo.
The Commissioner of Police, Joshak Habila, said one of them, Solomon, was arrested with a locally made pistol by a patrol team at Umuojima Junction during a random stop and search operation.
He also said, during interrogation, the suspect confessed that he was an armed robber and a member of Vikings secret cult.
According to him, the suspect revealed that one “Teco Daco,” who is still wanted, was responsible for the killing of the traffic police officer.
The suspect led detectives to arrest other members of the gang who would be arraigned as soon as investigations were concluded.
But one of the suspects, Wisdom, denied any involvement in the alleged killing, explaining that he was a student of Ngwa High School and was returning to his house one evening when he was arrested by the police.
Similarly, another suspect, Orji, said he was not a robber but was in his house when police returned with his cousin and arrested him, alleging that he was a cultist and member of a robbery gang.
