Police arrest suspect involved in alleged murder of Enugu monarch

The Enugu State Police Command has arrested one of the suspects
allegedly involved in the murder of Igwe Stephen Nwatu, the
traditional ruler of Ogbozinne community in Nkanu West Local
Government Area of the state.

Spokesman of the Command, SP Ebere Amaraizu, disclosed this in a
statement on Thursday in Enugu.

Amaraizu said the suspect, "believed to have participated actively in
the act" was nabbed by police operatives two days ago.

"The suspect is helping the police in its investigations and the
command has intensified manhunt for other suspects,'' he said.

Recall that Nwatu was murdered on June 11 in the community over a
protracted town union leadership.

The leadership tussle is said to have been on for more than 10 years.

Over 200 houses were allegedly burnt down by a group loyal to the
monarch in retaliation of his alleged murder.
