Five (5) male suspects, comprising HRH Herbert Ukuta, the traditional ruler of Igga community, Festus Okonkwo, Ofodile Titus Henry, Sunday Ugwu and Obinna Ayogu, arrested for masterminding the unprovoked and unwarranted attack and gruesome murder of two (2) policemen and three (3) neighbourhood watch group members, in the evening hours of Friday, May 3, 2024, at Igga community in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area, were on June 6, 2024, arraigned in court and remanded in the Nigerian Correctional Custodial Centre.

They were arraigned for the offenses of conspiracy, terrorism, and murder upon being found culpable during investigations.

It will be recalled that on the said date, a combined security policemen and neighbourhood watch group, providing security for a team of investors on a visiting tour to a proposed agricultural investment site in the area, was ambushed and attacked by a large group of armed criminal elements harboured in the community. However, the remains of the two (2) policemen and three (3) members of the neighborhood watch group murdered by the assailants, were later recovered following the revelations of the traditional ruler and others earlier arrested and detained on court orders.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Kanayo Uzuegbu, psc (+), has reiterated the resolve of the Command to bring everyone involved in the senseless act to justice.

He cautions those hell-bent on using social media and insidious and clout-chasing online media publishers to publish falsehoods, in a bid to divert public attention from the mind-boggling issues in the case, to desist forthwith.

He warns that the command will not be deterred or distracted from getting to the root of the ugly incident by such unfounded media smear campaigns.
