“Amazingly, while coming out of the terror camp, one of the suspects, Hycent Chimezie for the second time, attempted escaping and was maimed on the leg.

“In the course of interrogation, the suspects confessed to have murdered late Inspector Felicia Nwagbara, who was the second wife to one of the suspects — Casmire Mgbugba. They further stated that they are the manufacturers of the locally made guns recovered from them apart from using them in perpetrating crimes, they sell to robbers and kidnappers.”

The police spokesperson added that the weapons recovered from the suspects include a Toyota Camry with registration number AKD 73 BF LAGOS, live Python, eight locally-made pistols, 18 rounds of live cartridges, Biafran flag and “a pair of police camouflage uniform belonging to the late Inspector Felicia Nwagbara ‘f’ who has been declared missing since 2017 by police authorities”.
