Killers of Oscar Okebata arrested in Imo

The police in Imo State have arrested a police Sergeant, Iseke Koradam, at a hospital in Oke-Uvuru, in the Aboh Mbaise Local Government Area of the state while allegedly attempting to steal a newborn baby.

This is just as the suspected killers of Oscar Okebata, a retired soldier in the American Army who was robbed and murdered in Atta, in the Ikeduru LGA, on January 12,2017, were also arrested.

At a press briefing in Owerri, the state capital on Wednesday, the Commissioner of Police, Taiwo Lakanu, said Chukwu Osondu, Stanley Uchechukwu, Kelvin Onyekachi and Promise Uchendu were apprehended with “concrete evidence that showed that they murdered the ex-solider” who was in the state for the Christmas and New Year celebrations.

The CP added that the suspects allegedly sold Okebata’s Samsung Galaxy Note 5  handset at N125,000, which led to their arrest by the operatives of the command. Lakanu said, “The suspects were arrested in connection with the robbery and murder of one Oscar Okebata of Achi Mbieri in the Mbaitoli Local Government Area of Imo State, an American veteran solider who returned home for Yuletide last year”.Read more
