The Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) in charge of Zone 13; AIG Danmallam Mohammed has directed officers to bring killers of the Senior Special Assistant to Anambra Governor Willie Obiano on Security; the late Azubuike Ekwegwalu, to book.
Mohammed, on Monday described the incident as “sad and most unfortunate.”
The AIG said he had directed the Anambra Police Commissioner, CP John Abang to commence investigation into the matter; in a bid to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident.
“I am sure that the commissioner of police will intensify intelligence to track down the criminals and make sure that they are brought to book. The people of the state should not express fear or have sleepless nights over the development.
“They should know that in larger societies like this, there are pockets of crimes,” he said.
The Police AIG assured the people, especially family members of the deceased that the culprits would be apprehended; no matter how highly placed they were. Also, he expressed concerns over the increasing wave of cultism in the state; warning cultists to denounce their membership or face the wrath of the law.

Also, the Police Command’s Spokesman in the state, SP Haruna Mohammed already said a suspect seen within the premises around 1:30am; on the fateful day had been arrested for further investigations.
