Abattam added that the suspect also allegedly narrated how on May 30, 2021, his gang murdered Ahmed Gulak, who was a political adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The Imo State Police Command says it has nabbed an Indigenous People of Biafra commander, SaharaReporters reports.

The police says one of the notorious commanders of the Indigenous People of Biafra/Eastern Security Network, identified as Lance Corporal Nwangwu Chiwendu, aka Onyearmy, a deserter from the Nigerian Army.

SaharaReporters had exclusively reported how Chinwendu who was allegedly responsible for training and recruiting people into ESN was arrested during his father’s burial.

“IPOB/ESN Deputy Commander for Imo State; 13NA/70/9974 Lcpl Nwagwu Chiwendu, a deserter of the Nigerian Army has been arrested. This soldier deserted the army and joined ESN since January 2021,” a military source had told SaharaReporters.

“He was their main trainer in weapon handling and rose to be the second-in-command to Temple who is now the leader of the group in Imo State.

“While in the army, he served in Operation Hadin Kai and thus has operational experience. He was arrested during the burial of his father at Mbaise.”

Parading the suspect before journalists in Owerri on Wednesday, the Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Mike Abattam, said Chiwendu’s modus operandi was guerilla-like, unleashing surprise terror attacks and going into hiding in neighbouring states.

Abattam added that the suspect also allegedly narrated how on May 30, 2021, his gang murdered Ahmed Gulak, who was a political adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

“He confessed that he led the operation and they double-crossed and stopped the Toyota Camry taxi car that was taking him and his friend to the airport and ordered them to come down, shot him but the bullet did not penetrate his body, so he went to him, removed the rings on his right fingers, shot and killed him along airport road.

“He led his gang members, including one Okechukwu Duru, and others, to kidnap one Jude Nwahiri on November 4, 2021, and collected a ransom of N21 million after killing four persons in the residence of the victim at Amaohuru Nguru in Aboh Mbaise LGA, Imo State,” the police spokesman added.

The ex-soldier was also said to have murdered the traditional ruler of Amaohuru Nguru, Aboh Mbaise LGA, Imo State, Eze Anyanwu; a native doctor in Amaohuru Nguru, Uzodimma Ahaiwe; one Ugochukwu Olewuike, aka Taco; the youth leader of Amaohuru Nguru; one Krubo; a police inspector and a police sergeant, among others.

On December 25, the suspect reportedly led security agents to a camp in Obowo, where the operatives recovered five GPMG guns; four cut-to-size double-barrelled guns; five pump-action guns; three locally-made bombs; 19 rounds of AK-47 live ammunition; 52 live cartridges; 14 tear gas canisters; two police handcuffs; four safety desert boots, among others.

The suspect said some of their sponsors are abroad.
