The arrest of Chinwendu Nwagwu, the suspected leader of the gang that allegedly killed a former presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak, has left many Nigerians reacting.

The Imo State Police Command on Wednesday confirmed Nwagwu’s arrest.

According to the command’s spokesman, Michael Abattam, the suspect popularly known as ‘Onye Army’ confessed to joining the Nigerian Army in 2013 but left in 2021 and later joined the Eastern Security Network (ESN), the armed wing of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Abattam said Nwagwu further confessed to leading the gang that attacked offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Ihitte-Uboma and Isiala Mbano council areas as well as the state headquarters in Owerri.

He added that Nwagwu was arrested at his country home in Nguru, Aboh Mbaise council area of the state on Christmas Day.

Reacting, a presidential aide, Reno Omokri said, “Now that troops have arrested the IPOB commander who killed my former colleague, Ahmed Gulak, does Peter Obi care to revisit his previous statement that IPOB are not terrorists and that he lives with them and meets them on the street?”

A former Chairman National Human Right Commission, Professor Chidi Odinkalu, asked the police to explain how the police arrested Gulak’s killers multiple times in the past.

Jinadu Moshood said, “It’s no time to rejoice that another gullible youth got arrested for being zombified by those evil elders who constantly brew hatred in the youths they swore to enlighten.

“Why will he be so angry for what happened in 1967-70! Why did he kiII Ahmed Gulak? Ohaneze no try at all.”
