A 40-year-old man, Uzoamaka Ugoanyanwu described as a notorious native doctor, who allegedly makes charms for members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), and members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN) has been arrested by the police in Imo State.

Mr Abutu Yaro, the State Commissioner of Police, who confirmed the arrest, said the police also arrested nine suspects who took part in the attack on the country home of Gov. Hope Uzodimma, pointing out that the breakthrough followed a painstaking investigation carried out by the command’s tactical units just as he urged criminal elements who are still in possession of police arms to willingly return them.

They also invaded ESN camp on Monday in Ikeduru council area, dislodged the camp and rescued a female police officer held captive.

“On June 8, at about 1630 hrs, tactical teams of the command through diligent and painstaking investigations, stormed Ukwuorji, Mbaitoli Local Government area, along Onitsha road and arrested one Ezeugo Ordu, a native of Ubachima, Omuma, Oru West LGA.

“He confessed to being a member of IPOB/ESN and made useful statements to the Police as regards to the recent attacks on Police stations as well as the residence of Gov. Uzodinma.

“He further led operatives of the command to the IPOB/ESN camp, a bush close to Njaba River, 9 persons were arrested at the criminal hideout while planning another attack, assorted charms were recovered from them.

“However, two out of the 9 arrested in the hideout, Chinedu Nwakaire and Uzoamaka Ugoanyawu the native doctor, were identified to be part of the hoodlums that attacked the private residence of the governor recently”..
