The Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) in charge of Zone 13; AIG Danmallam Mohammed has vowed to bring killers of the Senior Special Assistant to Anambra Governor Willie Obiano on Security; the late Azubuike Ekwegwalu, to book.
Mohammed, who made the pledge on Monday in an interview with newsmen in his office at Ukpo near Awka; described the incident as “sad and most unfortunate.”
The AIG said he had directed the Anambra Police Commissioner, CP John Abang to commence investigation into the matter; in a bid to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident.
“I am sure that the commissioner of police will intensify intelligence to track down the criminals and make sure that they are brought to book. The people of the state should not express fear or have sleepless nights over the development.
“They should know that in larger societies like this, there are pockets of crimes,” he said.
The Police AIG assured the people, especially family members of the deceased that the culprits would be apprehended; no matter how highly placed they were. Also, he expressed concerns over the increasing wave of cultism in the state; warning cultists to denounce their membership or face the wrath of the law.
Ekwegbalu, 43, was allegedly stabbed to death with a kitchen knife at his residence in the Commissioners’ Quarters, Awka; by unknown assailants on Sunday.
Also, the Police Command’s Spokesman in the state, SP Haruna Mohammed already said a suspect seen within the premises around 1:30am; on the fateful day had been arrested for further investigations.
Meanwhile, a shooting outside the White House fence on Monday evening prompted security agents to suddenly usher US President; Donald Trump out of the briefing room.
Trump was minutes into his daily news conference when the shooting began.
Thereafter, Secret Service agents were seen escorting him out of the room. However, he returned several minutes later. Trump revealed that law enforcement officers had shot a suspect who he said had been armed.
“It was a shooting outside of the White House. Law enforcement shot someone. Seems to be the suspect and the suspect is now on the way to the hospital. It seems to be very well under control. But there was an actual shooting, and somebody has been taken to the hospital.
