Police arrest killers of Onwa, an APC stalwart in Festac


Police has arrested four suspected killers of a stalwart of APC in Festac, Emmanuel Ubah alias Onwa.

Ubah, who was the head of Community Policing Youth Vanguard (CPYV) in Amuwo Odofin LGA was shot dead on the eve of council elections in July. He was shot four times on the head and all his mobile phones into the canal. 


After months of tracking the culprits, police on Monday paraded Michael Fashola, Mufutau Tokosi alias TK, Abidemi Adeleye alias Baido and Fatai Onifade alias Apashe. .
.
The suspects were said to have been contracted to kill Ubah but they denied the allegation, insisting that they murdered him because they felt threatened by his influence in the area. .
.
It was gathered that the suspects, who fled to Cotonou after allegedly committing the offence, later had a disagreement on the balance of their payment. .
.
They were said to have been embroiled in fights with Onifade, who was allegedly their link to the person who ordered the murder. .
.
Parading the suspects, acting Police Commissioner Imohimi Edgal said a Barreta Pistol, two live ammunition and one pump action gun were recovered from them.
