A suspected member of a kidnap gang who abducted and killed Rev. Fr. Cyriacus Onunkwo in 2017 has been arrested by men of the Imo State Police Command.
The state Public Relations Officer, Orlando Ikeokwu, who confirmed the arrest said that the suspect, Mr Charles Nnanna from Aji in Oru East council of the state had been on the run since the incident occurred while other members of his gang were rounded up.
However, the police on February 16, 2020 cut short his fun when he was arrested on his traditional wedding day, by the operatives of the Special Anti- Robbery Squad (SARS)
Nnanna allegedly fled to Indonesia after the operation only to come back three years later thinking that the storm was over.
The police said he had confessed to the crime as well as his role in the operation. Ikeokwu has assured the public that the suspect would be prosecuted accordingly.
The murdered Catholic priest from Osina, came home from overseas to bury his late father but was kidnapped and killed by Nnanna and his gang, and his body was also recovered few days after where it was dumped on the road.
