The police in Ebonyi State caught four people for killing a top member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Nweke.
Do you remember when Nweke was killed by bad people who support another group during election day on March 18, 2023?
The leader of the PDP in a neighborhood called Umuezeokaoha was killed while working for his political party. This happened in Ezza North, which is part of a state in Nigeria.
On Friday, the police said that the suspects admitted to the crime in a statement signed by their spokesperson, SP Onome Onovwakpoyeya.
The words that were read said a little bit.
When the police asked the suspects questions, one of them named Leonard Kelechi Nwali admitted to paying people to harm Peter Nweke. Nwali wanted to become a politician in the Ezza North area. Sadly, Nweke passed away because of the attack.
But, he passed away while trying. He felt Peter Nweke could ruin his political plans, so he asked someone named Akwasi from Umuezeoka to hurt him. Sadly, the torture they did caused Peter Nweke to pass away.
The second person, Onyebuchi Chita, admitted to bringing in the killers from Nkomoro to Ogboji where Peter Nweke was murdered. He lives in Nkomoro community in the same area.
The third person, Aloke Obinna, from Ogboji community admitted to giving his motorcycle to someone named Onyebuchi Chita to run away after the bad thing happened.
Ifeanyi Nwokpuku, from Ogboji community in Ezza North LGA, joined with Sampson Nweke to tell the murderers where to find Peter Nweke. Now, Ifeanyi is the fourth suspect in the case.
Onovwakpoyeya said that the people who are suspected of doing something wrong will go to court after the police finish finding out what happened.
