Following the allegation of killing a fellow Nigerian, a Nigerian man has been arrested in the Kufra District of Libya.
The Migrant Rescue Watch disclosed this in a statement made on their X account, disclosing that the accused confessed to the crime, citing a personal dispute with the victim.
The accused was arrested following an investigation into an unidentified deceased person delivered to a hospital in Kufra.
The post read, “05.01.24 – Police, in response to a report of an unidentified deceased person delivered to hospital in Kufra, launched an investigation and arrested a Nigerian.
“The accused, during interrogation admitted to killing the victim (also of Nigerian nationality) following a personal dispute. The case was referred to Public Prosecution for legal action.”
Meanwhile, the Enugu State Police Command has arrested two men, Chekwube Nwobodo and Ifeanyi Edeh, for alleged armed robbery and burglaries.
This is according to a statement by the command’s spokesman, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, on Tuesday in Enugu.
He said the suspects were arrested for the alleged crimes committed within the Obinagu-Etiti and Nara-Unateze communities in the Nkanu East Local Government Area of the state.
According to him, the command recovered one locally fabricated pistol with two live cartridges, pieces of substance suspected to be crystal meth (Mpkuru-Mmiri) and a quantity of weed suspected to be marijuana.
Ndukwe said the feat was achieved on January 3, at about 2:40 pm, adding that other gang members of the suspects that escaped are being trailed.
“The suspects and gang members at large are alleged to have carried out series of armed robberies, burglaries, and other criminal activities in the mentioned area.
“But having met their waterloo, the suspects shall have the court of law to contend with once investigations are concluded,” he said.
Ndukwe said the operational success was in alignment with the 2024 New Year assurances of the Commissioner of Police, Mr Kanayo Uzuegbu, to residents that the command would be more proactive and forward-looking in its policing approach.
“The commissioner has reassured that the police commitment to actualise this remains unwavering,” he added.
