According to him, those arrested include a native doctor, 48-year-old Uzoamaka Ugoanyanwu, who prepared charms for gunmen alleged to be members of the proscribed IPOB and ESN.
Also arrested were 40-year-old Chinedu Nwakaire a.k.a. One Door, who both have been identified as being part of those who attacked the country home of Governor Uzodinma and some Police stations in the state, even as they have already confessed to the crimes and also stated their roles during the dastardly acts.
