The Police have ar­rested a middle aged man, Mr Joshua Anyanwoke, for allegedly killing his kins­man over N1,200 debt. He hails from Ozatta vil­lage in Ukwa West LGA of Abia State.

Commissioner of Po­lice, Mr Leye Oyebade, who disclosed this while parading some suspects yesterday in Umuahia, gave the name of the vic­tim as Paul Ezinwa, who also hailed from the same village with the suspect.

He said the incident took place on May 19, 2017, adding that it was the suspect that reported himself to the police.

According to the po­lice boss, the suspect armed with a machete, had stormed the victim’s house on the said date and demanded payment of the debt but the victim could not pay.

He said that the sus­pect out of anger gave the victim some machete cuts on the neck region. He later died on the way to the hospital due to heavy bleeding.

The CP said the vic­tim’s body had been de­posited in the mortuary while the suspect would soon be arraigned for murder.

Also paraded was a fake pastor and opera­tor of a medical centre in Aba who allegedly con­verted his clinic to a baby factory.

The suspect, Chris Tochukwu from Ogidi in Anambra State was said to be habouring five pregnant teenagers in the clinic with the intention of collecting and selling their babies after birth.

One of the inmates rescued from the clinic, Imeboh Udoh from Akwa Ibom State, said her 2-year-old baby dis­appeared from the clinic after the fake pastor ha­boured them for about two weeks.

She said she came to Aba early this year with her baby begging arms at the Main Park area of the commercial city when the man saw her and promised to help her and provide shelter for her and her baby.
