Police officer who killed cyclist still in our custody – CP
Commissioner of Police in Anambra state, Monday Bala Kryas, has dismissed the rumour alleging that the police officer arrested for allegedly shooting to death a commercial motorcyclist in Igboukwu, had been discharged and freed.
The 28-year-old cyclist was, in December last year, allegedly shot dead in Igboukwu by the police officer.
The CP, through the police public relations officer, PPRO, Ikenga Tochukwu described the report as untrue, malicious, a product of fiction, and handiwork of persons hell-bent on misinforming and misleading the general public, ostensibly to cause mischief and incite the public against the police.
He warned the rumour peddlers to desist forthwith, just as he assured the public that justice would be served on the matter.
He said, “The suspect linked to the death of the late Mr Ebele Nwaogha, aged 28years from Ngo Igboukwu at Akuka Junction, Nkwo Market, on 15th December, 2020, is still in police custody and undergoing internal disciplinary procedure of the Force.
“The outcome of the investigations would be made public in due course. The CP, therefore, warned the originators and peddlers of the unfounded rumour to desist forthwith, as they would not be spared if apprehended.
“He also urged the public to disregard the report and further assured them that justice would be served on the matter.”
