Imo mob batter 'Fela' to death

22 September 2016, 11:26

Imo - A notorious criminal, Charles Emeka, popularly called Fela, who had allegedly been terrorising residents of Owerri, the capital of Imo State, and its environs, has been killed, Punch reports.

It was gathered on Wednesday that a mob in Owerri battered him to death.

Emeka, a native of Aguneze in the Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government Area of the state, was said to have confessed to the mob that he could not remember the number of persons he had killed.

The irate mob subsequently inflicted injuries on him before the intervention of the state police command.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Andrew Enwerem, said that Fela had already been battered to death before the intervention of the police, adding that efforts to revive him at a hospital proved abortive.

The PPRO said the police would have loved to interrogate him so that his gang members could be nabbed.

He urged members of the public with useful information on the whereabouts of other members of the gang to report to the police.

Fela was arrested over his alleged involvement in the killing of a National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, member, James Onuh according to News24.

He was arrested by the Bayelsa State Police Command after a tip-off over the incident which occurred in June, in Obele, a suburb of Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital.

The suspected killer was also accused of involvement in a separate homicide ‎in another part of the State capital.
