The commercial city of Onitsha, Anambra State was yesterday thrown into excitement following the arrest of a notorious armed robbery suspect, Chinemerem Elebeke, famously known as Meskana.
Meskana was alleged to have been terrorizing residents of the area.
His arrest is coming barely one month after the arrest of notorious kidnapper, Chukwudemeje George Onwuamadike, otherwise known as Evans.
Following his arrest, over 20 victims of the suspect stormed the Fegge police station Onitsha.
Confirming the arrest, DPO of the station, Mr. Rabiu said his officers had been on the trail of the suspect.
“I knew that if we didn’t get him my area would remain unsafe,” he said.
The DPO added that the suspect confessed to have robbed about 30 innocent victims at different locations, including Ogbaru, Fegge, Odoakpu, Inland town and environs, as well as petrol filling stations, shops, markets and some residential homes.
“As God would have it, on a tip-off that he was somewhere at Odoakpu, we mobilized and on getting there, we arrested him.
“His parents came in here begging for his release with N1 million but you know money is not everything.
“This is somebody who has caused much trauma to the society, including a pastor. Since his arrest, his victims have continued to flood the station to have a glimpse of him,” he added.
