Others include Ewele Okeke, Oloh Chike, Ogugua Maduka and Odemenam Chinedu.

Confirming the arrest, the Commander of SPACS, Mr. Christopher Bassey, (CSP) advised parents to always monitor the type of company their children keep adding that no one caught would be spared but rather face the wrath of the law.

He urged people with useful information on criminals to always come forward assuring that the identity of such informants would be utter mostly protected.

Items recovered from them include, one cut- to- size locally made gun, one axe, one expended cartridge, one beret cap, and assorted charms.

Other items were one knife, pieces of clothe, liquid substance in two plastic bottles suspected to be cocaine, and a box of matches.

Similarly, an Awka Magistrate court Presided over by Senior Magistrate Mike Anyadiegwu, has remanded 13 cultists in Prison custody on a three-count charge of conspiracy, murder and cultism.

When the case was called up in court, the counsel to the accused, Barr.A.R. Nzekwe applied for their bail which the Prosecuting Police Sergeant Ikemefuna Nnamani, objected because of the nature of the case.
