Tension Mounts in Enugu as High Court Contemplates Release of Key Suspects in Notorious Murder Case

Late Igwe Emmanuel Mba

Published

There is a palpable tension in Enugu State as reports suggest that the State High Court Two, presided over by Justice Romanus O. Odugu, is considering the release of two primary suspects in the high-profile murder case of Igwe Emmanuel Chidiebere Mba, the traditional ruler of Oruku.

There is an uneasy calm in Enugu State as intelligence reports indicate that the State High Court Two, under Justice Romanus O. Odugu, is deliberating the release of two crucial suspects in the murder trial of Igwe Emmanuel Chidiebere Mba.

A dismissed police inspector, Daniel Dennis, and an Enugu-based land commission agent, Chief Moses Nnamani, stand accused of the gruesome murder, with their bail application scheduled for Tuesday. The fear looms that despite the gravity of the charges, the court might grant them bail.

Last year, bail granted to two other murder suspects preceded arson attacks on the homes of Ejike and Agozie Ani, who opposed the suspects. Their houses were burned on the second anniversary of Igwe Mba’sv murder, along with the late Igwe’s palace and ten other houses.

“The possible release of the murder suspects will lead to serious consequences for the people of the Oruku community,” warns human rights activist Collin Ohiaeri in a letter to various authorities.

In the Save Our Soul (SOS) letter, Collin Ohiaeri, a human rights activist, warns of serious consequences for the Oruku community if the murder suspects are released. Ohiaeri addresses the letter to Governor Peter Mba, the Chairman of the National Judicial Commission, the Enugu State Attorney General, and Justice Odugu.

Igwe Mba was murdered during the Oruku annual general meeting, drawing national outrage. The Justice Eya Commission and the Deputy Inspector General of Police’s investigative report implicated Inspector Daniel and Chief Nnamani in the killing.

Inspector Daniel, in collaboration with Chief Nnamani, was found responsible for Igwe Mba’s murder, according to the nine-page report of the Justice Eya Commission. The police team that killed the traditional ruler used a vehicle belonging to Nnamani, as confirmed by the Deputy Inspector General of Police.

The Justice Eya Commission’s findings align with the Deputy Inspector General of Police’s report, which reveals that Chief Nnamani had fabricated allegations against Igwe Mba. Nnamani, who fled to Ghana, was arrested last August after being lured back to Nigeria with the promise of a lucrative land deal in Abuja.

Senior police officers express concern over the potential release of the murder suspects, emphasizing the grave security risks they pose. The volatile situation in Oruku, marked by violence and arson, has claimed numerous lives, including the recent murder of Justice Stanley Nnaji.

“It will be perilous to release any of these grave security risks,” cautions a senior officer in the Enugu Police Command. Dr. Tony Eze, a law lecturer familiar with the case, underscores the recklessness of allowing the suspects to walk free, given the violent crime wave in the state. GMTNews

Attempted Murder Case Against Electricity Vandal Adjourned Until Tuesday by Court

Electricity distribution network

By Chijioke Ogbodo

Abia – Uche Maduabuchi, a notorious thief of power electricity infrastructure in Aba, Abia State, who allegedly planned and led a mob to lynch four Aba Power staff members, is facing an attempted murder case. The accused, aged 40, will be detained by the Police Anti-kidnapping Unit until next week when the trial resumes. The employees of Aba Power who were allegedly targeted for homicide are Chinonso Nwabundu, Stephen Ngozi John, Samuel Nwachukwu, and Onyeka Ezeaguba.

The special magistrate court presided over by The Hon Ukaegbu, located at the Aba Area Command of the Nigeria Police Force, has put the suspect on a holden charge. The court was convened specially due to ongoing strikes by judiciary workers in Abia State. The workers have been protesting nonpayment of salaries and other related welfare issues for several months.

A policeman who prefers to remain anonymous as he is not authorized to speak to the media reveals that Maduabuchi, the accused electricity vandal, allegedly wanted to prevent the four employees from obstructing his further damage to electricity infrastructure and reporting him to their organization or higher authorities.

Suspect: Uche Maduabuchi

The officer discloses that Maduabuchi hysterically accused the workers of being electricity vandals and causing power outages in the city by stealing critical electricity distribution parts. Despite wearing their corporate field dress, name tags, and being in a company vehicle with company colors, a mob of about 100 individuals gathered and assaulted the workers, causing them to lose consciousness. The mob intended to burn the staff members alive with petrol and matches, but the situation was diffused by the prompt intervention of security personnel.

The police officer strongly urges citizens not to engage in mob actions and to avoid taking the law into their own hands. He explains that criminals often orchestrate mob violence, taking advantage of the situation to rob victims of their valuables or settle vendettas, and even to murder individuals carrying out their legitimate duties, as seen in this case.

The police officer is optimistic that if the suspect is successfully prosecuted, it will send a message that engaging in criminal conspiracy or any form of crime does not pay. Instead, it will bring criminals under the purview of the law, particularly those who vandalize essential infrastructure like power facilities that are utilized by the public. GMTNews
