Bayelsa State Police Command has arrested one of the suspected killers of SP Bako Angbashim, former Divisional Police Officer of Ahoada Division in Rivers.

Police spokesman in Bayelsa, CSP Asinim Butswat, confirmed the arrest in a statement issued to newsmen on Saturday in Yenagoa.

CSP Butswat said the suspect, Onyekachi Ikowa (43), the second-in-command to TuBaba, leader of the dreaded “Icelander’’ cult group in Rivers, was arrested on Nov. 18.

“Based on intelligence report that Ikowa was hibernating in Yenagoa after the callous murder of Late SP Angbashim in September, Commissioner of Police in Bayelsa, Mr Francis Iduh, charged that he be fished out.

“The suspect has been handed over to the police in Rivers further investigation,’’ he said.
