Two Pastors, Others Arrested For South East Attacks, Killings And Destructions Of Properties By The Eastern Security Network

Police Release Report In Arresting Two Pastors And Others For Being Masterminds Of The Killings In The South East

There has been reports of Killings and destructions in the Eastern part of the country, most of these destructions and killings have been directed towards the Eastern Network Security.

Well, to affirm that, the police have made some arrests and among these arrests were two pastor who have been accused of being spiritual and physical backups for the ESN during their attacks.

Most of the attacks have been said to particularly be targeted towards the security operatives, and hence the need to follow up and bring the whole trend to a stop.

In a statement released few minutes ago, the Force Public Relations, CP Frank Mba, said,

“The arrest, which is an outcome of painstaking, deliberate and tireless efforts by operatives of the Nigeria Police working in collaboration with their counterparts from the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Air Force is aimed at bringing to justice persons responsible for the emerging trend of attacks on security personnel and wanton destruction of security facilities and operational assets.

“The suspects - Ugochukwu Samuel a.k.a Biggy, 28-year-old native of Arochukwu LGA in Abia State; Raphael Idang, 31-year-old native of Odukpani LGA of Cross River state; Cletus Nwachukwu Egole aka ‘Alewa’, 60-years-old native of Orlu in Imo State; Michael Uba, 33yrs from Imo State; and twelve (12) others in the course of investigation, were implicated in multiple felonies committed across several states in the South-Eastern part of the Federation. The suspects were arrested in various parts of the country following sustained, and intelligence-driven sting operations.

“Police investigations clearly established and linked the suspects to several incidents of attacks and murder of security personnel as well as stealing, unlawful possession of firearms, arson and malicious damage to operational assets of military and law enforcement agents.

“Specifically, investigations revealed that the duo of Ugochukwu Samuel, aka Biggy and Raphael Idang were among the criminal elements that attacked policemen on duty at a checkpoint on 24th December, 2020 along Orlu-Ihiala Road in Imo state where two police officers were killed and a police Hilux patrol van set ablaze.”

The police stated that they all confessed to being very active members of the IPOB movement, this may make matters even worse for them.
 
“A total of nine AK-47 rifles, five other sophisticated firearms, 17 AK-47 magazines, 549 AK-47 live ammunition, 10 Improvised Explosive Devices, camouflage bullet proof vests, walkie talkies and other incriminating items were recovered from the suspects,” Frank stated.

“All the suspects will be charged to court on conclusion of investigations,” he Concluded.


My problem though, is not the arrest. My problem or should I call it a question is, will the esn back down? Will this arrest make them slow down or make them move faster to do what they are being accused of?
