Bayelsa Police arrest suspected culprit over beheading of DPO


Bayelsa State police operatives have apprehended one of the suspected killers of SP Bako Angbashim, a former Divisional Police Officer of Ahoada Division in Rivers State. The arrest marks a crucial step towards bringing those responsible for this heinous crime to justice.

Recall that Wuzup Nigeria reported that SP Angbashim was tragically beheaded by suspected cultists in September, leaving a community in mourning and authorities determined to apprehend the perpetrators. 

Following a thorough investigation guided by credible intelligence, Bayelsa police officers successfully apprehended Onyekachi Ikowa, 43 years old and the second in command of the dreaded Icelander cult group.

Spokesman for Bayelsa Police Command, Asinim Butswat, confirmed the arrest in a statement on Saturday.

He said: “The suspect, one Mr Onyekachi Ikowa’,43 years, and second in command to TuBaba of the dreaded Icelander cult group, was arrested on 18 November, 2023 based on credible intelligence that he was hibernating in Yenagoa after participating in the callous murder of  SP Bako Angbashim in September 2023.
