The Anambra State Police Command has declared three suspects wanted over alleged cases of conspiracy and conduct likely to cause breach of peace in the state. 

The suspects are kinsmen of famous novelist Chimamanda Adichie who recently condemned the alleged intimidation of people from her country home, Abba, Njikoka Local Government Area of the state, by the police.

She had accused the police of being used to humiliate and intimidate her people so as to lay claim to their ancestral land.

In a statement by the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Haruna Mohammed, he informed the general public that warrants of arrest was obtained by the police in respect of the arrest of the three suspects.
