No fewer than 20 victims of a serial armed robbery suspect, Chinemerem Elebeke, alias Meskana, who has been terrorising Onitsha and environs in Anambra State has stormed the Fegge Police Station in Onitsha to commend the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Mr. Gurba Rabiu on the arrest of the dreaded armed robber.

The victims, most of who were dispossessed of their belongings and cash at gun point, described the armed robber as “one in a million” saying that his name whenever mentioned sent jittery to the nerves.

The DPO, who confirmed the arrest to journalists in Onitsha, said: “The suspect has robbed about 30 innocent victims at different locations that include Ogbaru, Fegge, Odoakpu, Inland town and environs and got away with it.

“He has been a great terror to residents of those areas and for long we have been trailing him and I know that if we don’t get him my area will remain unsafe.

"As God would have it on a tip-off that he was somewhere at Odoakpu, we mobilised and on getting there, arrested him.

“Since his arrest, victims of his armed robbery escapade have continued to flood the station only to have a glimpse of him and he confessed robbing more than 30 people.

“His parents came in here begging for his release with N1 million but you know money is not everything. This is somebody who has caused much trauma to the society, including a Pastor.

“Places he confessed to have robbed include petrol filling stations, shops, markets and some residential homes. Now people in these areas can heave a sigh of relief.”

Rabiu added that the suspect will be charged to court as soon as investigations were concluded.
