A member of the gang, one Samuel Kalu alias ‘Obere’ who was arrested by the team upon a tip off on 27/05/17 in Okai Item, Bende LGA had confessed to the killing of two Police men at Orji Uzor Kalu bridge about two months ago, killing of one Chuks Mbaeri Okebata, a USA based Army Officer from Mbieri Imo State in December 2016 and that of eight members of the Abia Vigilante Services.


The team in a lead by the suspect towards arresting his gang members / recovering their weapons was attacked by hoodlums suspected to be his gang members. During a shootout, the suspect was caught up in a cross fire while one of the detectives sustained some injuries and the patrol van riddled with bullets.
