Police in Anambra State have arrested one Chiadiobi, an indigene of Enugu State and a butcher at Tarzan market, Nkpor, Anambra State, over the killing of Mr Kenechukwu Okeke, a supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Okeke, as reported by his wife, Mrs Blessing Odinakachi, was allegedly killed in October by Chiadiobi, a former tenant of his, after a disagreement.

The Anambra State Police Command’s Spokesperson, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga confirmed the arrest of Chiadiobi on Friday.

The arrest came barely 24 hours after the gruesome murder of the deceased.

Ikenga who spoke to the press said the state Police Commissioner, Mr Echeng Eworo gave an order for the suspect to be arrested and questioned over the death of Okeke.

Although details of the arrest are still sketchy, Ikenga said the suspect had discarded his phone number and gone into hiding when it dawned on him that the killing of Okeke had become public but he was later smoked out by police operatives and is now helping police authorities with its investigations.

Okeke had reportedly been matcheted and ignited by the suspect and later died in an Orthopedic Hospital in Enugu in October 2021 following injuries sustained from the burn.

Okeke was a pro-Buhari activist who dragged many to court for abusing the president, including celebrities and media outfits.

He became popular last year when he took sides with the federal government over the EndSARS protest, while also dragging celebrities who led the protests to court.
