The Commissioner of Police in Imo State, Olaniyi Fafowora says the Police have launched a full-scale investigation into the killing of the 2019 candidate of Action Alliance in Imo North Senatorial District, Ndubuisi Emenike.
The police spokesperson, Orlando Ikeokwu, said the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps officer has been arrested and transferred to the command headquarters in Owerri.
Ikeokwu said the command and the authorities of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps were jointly carrying out the investigation.
He said that contrary to the news that the NSCDC officer who killed the politician was attached to the victim, the killer operative was attached to another person who accompanied the deceased to the venue.
Ikeokwu urged the youths of the area to remain calm, as the police would do a thorough job.
It could be recalled that Emenike was shot dead by an operative of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps during a victory party for the All Progressives Congress in Okigwe North Federal Constituency of Imo State held Saturday.
