The Nigeria Police

Parading the suspect yesterday at the State Police Headquarters, Owerri, the Acting Commissioner of Police, Mr. Dave Akinremi, explained that the fake soldier was arrested by the Command while terrorizing Nekede people.

“The suspect was nabbed, following a credible tip off and he would be charged before a competent court for impersonation and felony, after proper investigation”, the Acting CP said.

“Kelechi Ihemegbulam is was wanted for his involvement in the murder of several persons within and around the state, as well as cult- related activities. “He has since made useful statement to the police and would soon be charged to court”, Mr. Akin refi said.
