The Abia State Police Command has arrested sergeant Chinatu Onyema, who allegedly killed two persons in Aba, the commercial hub of the state two weeks ago.
The State Police command had declared Onyema wanted last week.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Geoffrey Ogbonna, told newsmen on Monday that Onyema was arrested on Saturday in Akunakpu village within the Isiala Ngwa police division.
The cop with force No. 461624, who was formerly attached to the Department of Operations at the state police headquarters, Umuahia, was on special duty at Crunchies Fried Chicken Ltd in Aba where he allegedly committed the crime.
It was gathered that the incident happened on Constitution Crescent Road where Onyema attended a distress call placed by a driver with Crunchies Fried Chicken Ltd identified as Njoku Uzoma.
The police said he had no authorisation for such venture where he allegedly shot two persons.
The PPRO added that the suspect is currently facing orderly room trial after which he would face prosecution in court.
