A leader of the unknown gunmen terrorising the South East region, Nnahadi Michael, has allegedly been arrested in Amichi, Nnewi South LGA Anambra State.
According to a Facebook user, Ikechukwu Onyia, the suspect who claimed to be a commander in the group, was said to have been arrested on Sunday.
Onyia, who shared pictures and videos of the arrested commander said: “At about 1.35pm, today at Ebenator-Udene Village, Amichi, Nnewi South LGA, Nnahadi Michael, was arrested by special tactical teams.
“He was unveiled as part of a gang operating as Unknown Gunmen, UGM, while enforcing Sit At Home order at Amichi, extorting money and causing mayhem.”
In the video, the culprit confessed to having only killed three persons since he joined the group.
Speaking in Igbo, the culprit said: “We only tied them to confess if they were politicians, but two died. It was only one that was shot dead.
“As for the one that was beheaded, it was not me that beheaded him. I had not been made the commander then, but I joined them during that operation. Our commander then is now dead,” he said.
Onyia in his post stated that the culprit’s main cohort, Chikwendu Mbonu, a witch doctor of Obiagu is still at large but his Shrine was destroyed, while the suspect is presently in command custody for further interrogation.
