Iroha said: "I want the police to arrest Dan Okoli to tell them who killed my father. He incited the youths to kill him, so I want the police to ensure that he faces the law."

He alleged that his father was killed on Monday night by scores of irate youths, who accused him of giving police information on criminal activities in his domain.

Prince Iroha alleged that the youths were addressed by both the transition council chairman, Prince Dan Okoli and the council lor representing Leru ward, Livinus Okoronkwo on the fateful day and an hour later the palace was attacked.

According to him, "they incited the youths by telling them something" hence the police should find out what the youths were told the two politicians. But Iroha could not say what problem the family has with the chairman to warrant killing their father. ( Continues below..... )

However, denying the allegation, the chairman said "It is not true. I did not incite anybody against anybody. Rather the youths were on rampage because of the arrest by the police of some boys said to be innocent."

According to him, when the information got to him where he was at a function by the Council or representing the community, I asked the DPO to release the boys to the council or if could properly identify them.

The Assistant Commissioner of Police in-charge of Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Mr. Joseph Micloth said the 20 suspects had been arrested while investigation continued, though he did not give details of those arrested, but he vowed that the police would get to the root of the matter and culprits made to face the law.

Chief Chukwuma IgbonnajiPoliticians should stop making the police look like they do not know their job by aiding criminals and at the same time asking for the release of criminals when arrested.

Akpan S.Hear him "i asked the police to release the boys to the council" while at a function as if he is the state commissioner of police. The police should properly investigate this so called transition commitee chairman.
