An accused commander of the high-profile terrorist gang known as the Unknown Gunmen has been apprehended.
On Sunday, the terrorist, who claimed to be a group commander, was alleged to have been apprehended.
A Facebook user, Mr Ikechukwu Onyia, who shared pictures and videos of the arrested commander said: “At about 1.35pm, today at Ebenator-Udene Village, Amichi, Nnewi South LGA, Nnahadi Michael, was arrested by special tactical teams.
“He was unveiled as part of a gang operating as Unknown Gunmen, UGM, while enforcing Sit At Home order at Amichi, extorting money and causing mayhem.”
In the video, the culprit confessed to having only killed three persons since he joined the group.
Speaking in Igbo, the culprit said: “We only tied them to confess if they were politicians, but two died. It was only one that was shot dead.
“As for the one that was beheaded, it was not me that beheaded him. I had not been made the commander then, but I joined them during that operation. Our commander then is now dead,” he said.
The culprit’s major companion, Chikwendu Mbonu, a witch doctor from Obiagu, is still at large, but his Shrine has been demolished, according to Onyia’s tweet, while the suspect is currently in command custody for further interrogation.
Meanwhile, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, the spokesman for the Anambra State Police Command, claimed he could not authenticate the veracity of the video and that the arrest was made by the Imo State Police Command.
CSP Abattam, the spokesman for the Imo State Police Command, did not take or respond to calls.
