Enugu Police Command has arrested a native doctor simply identified as Akor who allegedly paid N200,000 to another man named Idoko of Ifuroka Amala in Udenu Local Government Area of the state, to kill one Onyemaechi Eze on July 5.
Police investigation gathered that the native doctor paid the suspect N200,000 to kill the victim.
The suspect, after committing the murder in his community, was said to have fled to an unknown destination, but was later arrested on September 16, at Inyi in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area, where he was hiding.
Disclosing this in a statement, Enugu State Police Public Relation Officer, PPRO, Ebere Amaraizu, said: “a suspect, Idoko of Ifuroka Amalla Udenu Local Government Area, Enugu State, has been nabbed by the operatives of the Udenu Division of the Nigeria Police Force in partnership with the members of the public.
“The suspect, who fled after committing the alleged offence, was nabbed on September 16 at Inyi in Igboeze North Local Government Area, Enugu State, through a well-coordinated operation borne out of intelligence information.
“It could be recalled that the suspect, alongside others, had allegedly murdered one Onyemaechi Eze on July 5 over some unestablished issue and escaped to avoid being nabbed.
“The suspect is helping the Police in their investigations as he has given insight of how he and his gang collected N200,000 from a native doctor, Akor, who he alleged to have hired them to murder Onyemachi Eze.
“Akor has been nabbed by the Police and he is also helping the operatives in their investigations in relation to his alleged nefarious activities.”
