Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, has ordered the immediate arrest of a police officer simply identified as Corporal Chukwu.
The corporal was said to be a collaborator in the attack allegedly perpetrated by herdsmen in Ukpabi, Nimbo community, Uzo-Uwani local government area of Enugu state.
The IGP, who was accompanied by Chukwuka Utazi, the senator representing Enugu North, ordered that the said police officer be investigated and if found guilty, be prosecuted.
“I am not happy about what has happened and that is why I have decided to come and have an on-the-spot assessment of the situation.
“I have been discussing with the senator from the area and others to enable us find lasting solution to the problem. I have been able to see what happened and we should be able to find solutions.
“I can assure Nigerians that nobody has the right to take the life of any other Nigerian and go free with it. We are going to make sure that we catch them and prosecute them, and we will create the enabling environment for peace.”
Arase met with John Akor, the traditional ruler of the community, and suggested that community members be vigilant and law abiding
