The Imo State Police Command has announced the arrest of 18 criminals suspected to be members of the proscribed IPOB/ESN over the killing of the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Ahiazu Mbaise and an Inspector of Police at BOEK Petroleum Filling Station, Ahiara Junction, in Ahaizu, Mbaise LGA of Imo State.
The police revealed that the police officers were refuelling their vehicle when the suspects clad in military camouflage bearing black and red colours attacked them.

“No stone will be left unturned in ensuring that the perpetrators of the dastardly act are made to face the full wrath of the law. Police operatives led by CP Aboki Danjuma on a confidence-building patrol in Ahaizu Mbaise responded immediately and gave the hoodlums a hot chase, which forced them to flee with various degrees of gunshot injuries, abandoning some of their operational motorcycles.”
“The operatives were swiftly reinforced by the military, led by the Brigade Commander, 34 Artillery Brigade Obinze. Intense combing of the area is ongoing.Meanwhile, a total of 18 suspects have been arrested and are currently undergoing investigation.”
