The murder case of late Angus Okoye being investigated by Homicide Section of the FCID assumed a new drama since the arrest of the suspected murder-in-chief, Anthony Onyeagolu and others who have been on the run since December 2018 after the gruesome murder on 16/12/18 and attempted murder of Chidiebere Okoye on 18/11/18.
The truth of the matter is that the suspected murders due to their wealth and Police connections have been frustrating the investigation of these two cases with different Police formations at various times – State SARS Awkuzu in June 2019 and IGP monitoring units in July till September 2019 and two women were arranged who happened to be the wives of the known professional serial killers in Anambra state who were actually hired by Anthony Onyeagolu and his cohorts to perpetrate this crimes to falsely accuse the petitioner of the deceased brother, Chief Edward Okoye that he killed their husbands just for the purpose of what they were paid for as professionals being the wives of the serial killers.
This allegation was used in IGP monitoring unit to silence the real murder case which the deceased body is still lying in the mortuary till now and the other victim still in the hospital receiving treatment because of severe bullet wounds.
The case was eventually charged to court by Police on 09/09/19 and the trial is still ongoing having granted the deceased brother, Chief Edward Okoye & co. court bail on the ground of lack of evidence against their built up expectation.
Late last year, the DIG FCID in a routine check saw our abandoned murder case file and called for the proper investigation which the IPO traced our number and invited us around September 2019. Eventually we appeared and they took up the investigation and early this year, they were able to make headway by arresting some of the culprits in the attempted/murder cases and Cyprian Onyeagolu and Moses Emebo were tracked down and arrested.
Further progress was made on 10/02/20 when the murderer-in-chief, Anthony Onyeagolu was arrested at Awka. His arrest brought up again all the Police formations working for him to secure his bail and thwart the case again being spearheaded by one Officer Matthew Abu.
They petitioned to IRT to arrest the deceased family members to forestall investigation of their case onto the case already in the court undergoing trial. They stepped down when they discovered the truth that the case is in court.
On Thursday, 12/03/20, the duo of arrangee women with a lawyer resurfaced at the interview hired by Onyeagolu family to disrupt the interview with the same fake story of killing their husbands and the case already in court on trials which they denied to deceive CP, Homicide and the CP called for the IPO IGP monitoring unit to come with the case file to ascertain the truth on Friday, 13/03/20. When they discovered that they have no case in their claims, they arranged with FSARS to arrest the deceased brothers who were attending the interview, unknown to them outside.
When the deceased brothers came out to go in the evening with their lawyer, they received signal that FSARS led ambush in form of assassins with a tokumbo car with no plate number and they ran back to Fcid gate and suspected FSARS drove to filling station to lay siege believing that is the only to follow.
The deceased family now with the help of an officer from Police Service Commission got taxi for them and took Defense H/Qtrs road and they chased them but was slowed down by traffic light and they could not trace their movement, then they came back and arrested the people that came to bail their relations, having seen them with the deceased family and took them to FSARS office.
According to them, they were asking them who is Edward Okoye, who happens to be their target, a petitioner to the deceased family for murder of his younger brother by those that arranged the FSARS. The victims said that they have list of names in their hands for arrest from the deceased family onto a case already charged to court by the IGP monitoring unit with charge sheet no. MAW497c/2019 already undergoing trials.
The deceased family members are using this medium to inform the hardworking IGP to call his men to order to stop harassing, intimidating, arresting and frustrating the murder case of their slain brother by their pay masters, Anthony Onyeagolu and cohorts to practice impunity against the ethics of their job.
For crying out loud, the case they are arresting the deceased family for is already in the court for them to prove their lies with facts and allow our own case to go to court as well for us to prove it.
Why FSARS and other Police formations allow themselves to be used because evil money to chase the innocent family members not to seek for justice for the murder of their son by their pay masters.
Throughout 2019, Awkuzu SARS & IGP monitoring unit. This year 2020, IRT & FSARS all in a quest to bury a whole murder case the dead body is still in the mortuary to free their pay master – Onyeagolu family. Where is our moral conscience? What is wrong with our SARS. Can’t one talk that his brother’s life was wasted for no just cause because one has money to commit heinous crime and go free in Nigeria with the help of police SARS. Where is Police for commoners? It is only found in FCID who are bent on justice to prevail no matter who is involved.
The deceased family is calling on our tireless IGP, Police Service Commission, FPPRO and other senior Police officers to save us from the hands of their juniors busy going against the ethics of their profession for selfish gains.
The family is also appealing to Social Media Practitioners to take this impunity to the doorsteps of our amiable IGP and other relevant offices to help us address this intimidation and injustice to get justice to enable us bury our late brother still in the mortuary since 2018 due to police frustrations playing to the gallery of the wealthy suspects.
