Obiano reacts to the arrest of most wanted murder suspect

Anambra State Government yesterday celebrated the arrest and prosecution of the most wanted murder suspect, Ikechukwu Udensi, (aka Ikanda).

The suspect was declared wanted last year after he allegedly killed a 38-year-old graduate businessman, Ndubuisi Nwokolo, in June, in Onitsha.

Governor Willie Obiano, in a statement yesterday in Awka, hailed the new police commissioner, Mustapha Dandaura, for the feat.

In the statement, made available to reporters by Information and Public Enlightenment Commissioner Mr. Don Adinuba, he said there was more work to do by the command.

The statement said Obiano had written to the police commissioner to express satisfaction about how officers in Onitsha acted on a tip-off and arrested Udensi, who was at a secret location waiting for his agents collecting revenues illegally, to bring him money.

“The governor has been studying the strategy the command used to arrest this person on whom the government placed N1million bounty since last year for the callous manner in which Nwokolo’s life was ended last June.

“Obiano is impressed that immediately Udensi was arrested, he was taken to court, to avoid legal loopholes.

“The arrest and quick prosecution of Udensi show that the new police boss is here to work for the people and has bought into the government’s development agenda, which makes the security of life and property the first cardinal objective of the present administration.

“We recognise the importance of security in our socio-economic development architecture,” Obiano said in his letter to Dandaura.
