Some policemen have been arrested for their roles in the death of an undergraduate in Enugu State. They are DSP Nnamdi Ochin, the Officer-in-Charge of Anti-Cult unit Nsukka and ASP Peter Adu. Others are Sergeants Emmanuel Ibiam; Godwin Abel; and Abu John.
The indicted police officers had fled after killing the law student Augustine Ugwu.
The policemen reportedly arrested Ugwu, a final year student of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University on April 23, 2020.
Citing a source, ThePUNCH said Ugwu was shot in the leg and handed to DSP Ochin. He would later be declared missing from police custody.
Ugwu’s father, Andy Ugwu, a retired police officer, petitioned the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu. Police said their investigation showed the police officers murdered and buried Ugwu in a shallow.
Meanwhile, Daniel Ndukwe, spokesman for the Enugu Police Command, reportedly confirmed the arrest.
