Two arrested for ‘involvement’ in monarch’s death

The police in Imo State have arrested two persons for having a hand in the death of Eze Brendan Ibekwe, traditional ruler of Mgbe autonomous community in Orlu Local Government Area.

The spokesman, Andrew Enwerem, told reporters that Ibekwe was assassinated on June 24 and his body was dumped on the Orlu-Owerri highway.

Enwerem said the Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, had directed the command’s Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department to take over the matter.

Chairman of the Imo State Council of Traditional Rulers, Eze Samuel Ohiri, described the incident as a sacrilege. He called for a thorough investigation of the matter.
