“The Commissioner of Police, CP Echeng Echeng, has today 4/3/2022 encouraged residents to always seek other measures of resolving their issues than resorting to fight/violence,” Ikenga added in the release.
“The CP offered this advice in response to the arrest of one Ozioma Orakwe ‘F’, a 27-year-old woman, for the alleged murder of Martin Orakwe ‘M’, a 75-year-old man from Amatutu village in Agulu Anaocha LGA.
“In response to a report of purported suicide by the deceased received on 2/3/2022 at 3:08 pm from one Mr Martin Orakwe, preliminary investigation revealed that the victim had a cut on his head and marks of violence all over his body.
“Additional evidence indicates that the victim had a quarrel with the suspect prior to his death, which resulted in a fight.”
The dead was said to have died in a struggle, and Orakwe staged his death to look like a suicide, according to Ikenga.
Meanwhile, police reported that its agents had found the deceased’s body, and that the suspect had also offered a useful statement that is aiding the investigation.
After a thorough investigation, he said that the case would be taken to the court of law.
