Police nab ‘unknown’ gunman in Owerri, kill 5

Imo State Police command on Sunday arrested 30 year-old Stanley Osinachi, alleged to have been part of those causing the insecurity in the State.

While answering questions when he was paraded before the press, Osinacho admitted that he was part of the gang terrorising parts of Imo State in recent times.

According to him, their camp was at Akabo in Ikeduru local government area of the State while their charms were prepared by a nayive doctor in Aguleri, Anambra State.

He admitted that his gang gunned down many security operatives, including a policewoman last week around Spibath Road, Owerri.

Osinachi who hails from Achi Mbieri in Mbaitoli local government area of Imo State said he joined the gang following promises that they will build him a house but added that after joining, it became threats.

He said: “What makes me to be here is I joined the ESN (Eastern Security Network). The policemen caught me, we are more than seven. We came out this morning by 4am to attack officers. Along the line, they now traced us.

“I joined three days ago. Dragon our leader called me to join them and when I saw their operations I told him I wanted to leave but he threatened that he will shock me if I sabotage them. Yesterday I told him I wanted to go for a hair cut but he refused and said he will shoot me down.”

Further, he said their slain commander, late Dragon, said that funding came from abroad in addition to that which they forcefully collect from people.
