The police have paraded a father, his son and two others for alleged involvement in the kidnap and murder of a Port Harcourt lawyer and activist, Mr. Ken Atsuete.

The lawyer was murdered on August 29, 2016 along Onuchiolu road, Aluu in Ikwerre Local Government area of Rivers State.

Those arrested in connection with the incident are Chibiko Amuzuo, Amadi Nathaniel, Ezims Aleru and his son, Junior Aleru.

Parading them on Friday in Abuja, the Force Spokesman, Don Awunah said exhibits
recovered from them include, one AK 47 rifle, 124 live ammunition, and four AK 47 magazines.

He identified Amuzuo,22, a native of Umuchie in Omuna Local Governmnet Area of Rivers State as the leader of the gang.

Awunah said, “Amuzuo is a self-confessed member of the Iceland Cult group , Kelga Mariner and a notorious kidnapper. He also confessed to have led his gang of armed men to murder the deceased. The AK 47 rifle with which he used to kill the deceased was recovered.

“Also, contrary to wide public suspicion that he was hired to assassinate the deceased, the suspect according to his statement revealed that the murder was as a result of a botched kidnap attempt.”

He also noted that other members of the gang confessed to committing the crime.

Amuzuo fingered Aleru and his wife as the mastermind of the murder, but declined to explain their roles in the crime.

“This man (Ezims) led us to all these things. He and his wife were responsible for this operation”, he alleged.
