The Imo State Police Command has arrested a 20 year old member of the Aye confraternity cult group identified as Obinna Chigozie Onuoha (aka Nwa Pastor) who murdered Chikabala, a graduate of the Imo State University, in August 2016.
Late Chikabala had visited his school to complete his clearance for the National Youth Service Corps Programme (NYSC), when he was attacked and shot dead at the school gate.
Nwa Pastor who did not deny his crimes confessed that he is a member of the Aye cult group and has killed three (3) persons so far;
“I am a member of Aye cult group. We attack rival cultists anywhere, any day and any time. Since I joined the cult group, I have killed three persons. But I don’t attack rival cultists alone. Our members walk in group.
“Among those we have killed was Chibuike. I was the one that shot him at Douglas Road, Owerri. He was a member of a rival cult group. Another victim was Zaiki, who sold CD plates. I fired the shot that killed him at Ikenegbu Road. There was also a motorcyclist we killed at Mbaise Road.
“My members were responsible for the murder of Chikalaba in front of IMSU gate. We were five that carried out that attack. Their names are Shiba, Nonso, Freedom and Brano.
“Other members of our group are Black Fela, Owite, Pharoah and Ludacris. We kill rival group at sight because if we don’t, they will kill us.”
Andrew Ekwerem, the spokesperson for the State Police Command, said that the cultist who had been on the command’s wanted list for robbery, murder and cultism was apprehended at a beach in Mechanic Village, Nekede in Owerri West.
“The arrest was in line with Imo State Police Command’s Operation Nkpochapu Phase II (wipe out criminals). Some of the arrested suspects have been charged to court, while others are still undergoing thorough investigation.” Ekwerem said.
