Three suspects apprehended by the Rivers State Police Command for allegedly detonating an explosive device in Governor’s Wike’s father’s Church in River state said that they carried out the act because they were promised juicy positions in the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The reflector gathered that the suspects made this confession as they were paraded by the Commissioner of Police in the state, Joseph Mukan, at the Police headquarters, Port Harcourt.
Mukan gave the names and the State of the suspects as: Progress Owudinjo from Etche, Rivers State; Apuro Victor from Ebonyi State and John Okorie, from Abia State.
One of the suspects, Owudinjo, confirmed his membership of the IPOB. He said him and two other members were contracted to carry out the act.
Owudinjo said, “We were contracted to carry out the act. We got there in the night and we detonated the explosive.”
“This is the first assignment I am carrying out since I joined IPOB. I have not killed before. I was told that if I do not join in the operations that I will not get anything in the group. They promised us good office.”
Another suspect, Apuro Victor said that they were sent by one Chinedu, he however, said that he doesn’t know him that, adding that he doesn’t know where he comes from.
He said, “The whole thing was programmed. We were sent by one Chinedu. I don’t know where he came from. I am a member of IPOB.”
“The intention of the vision was not to kill anybody that is the reason why we did it at night. I have not done something like this before. Please, forgive me. I have not involved in violent act before. It was programmed.”
Meanwhile, Mukan said that the 3 suspects will soon be charged to court while the Police trail their sponsors
