The state of Anambra in the South-East was shaken with the news, not so long ago, of the brutal murder of a local keke operator. 25-year-old Chidi Mbgeanya was shot to death in Umudioka and his tricycle stolen by the perpetrator.
Now, in a welcome development, the Police have announced the arrest of one Chidibere Okechukwu, allegedly the chief suspect in the heinous crime.
Speaking for the Police, Haruna Mohammed informed the press about the apprehending of Chidiebere, and also disclosed that the suspect was a known convict. Chidiebere has also made his part in the affair known to the Police in a confession.
