Ikenga who spoke to mewsmen said the state Police Commissioner, Mr Echeng Eworo gave an order for the suspect to be arrested and questioned over the death of Okeke.

He said, “the suspect discarded his phone number and went into hiding when it dawned on him that the killing of Okeke had become public but he was later smoked out by police operatives and is now helping police authorities with its investigations.”

Okeke had reportedly been matcheted and ignited by the suspect and later died in an Orthopedic Hospital in Enugu in October 2021 following injuries sustained from the burn.

He was a pro-Buhari activist who dragged many to court for abusing the president, including celebrities and media outfits over the #EndSARS protests.
