Police Arrest Man Linked To Murder of Pro-Buhari Activist, Okeke

Police — in Anambra State has arrested one Chiadiobi, an indigene of Enugu State over the killing of Kenechukwu Okeke, a supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari. NAN had reported that the pro-Muhammadu Buhari government activist who put up a vicious opposition against the #EndSARS campaign, was killed by yet-to-be-identified attackers in Anambra State.

Okeke was said to have been macheted by some assailants numbering seven.
Okeke, as reported by his wife, Mrs Blessing Odinakachi, was allegedly killed in October by Chiadiobi, a former tenant of his, after a disagreement.
The Anambra State Police Command’s Spokesperson, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga, confirmed the arrest of Chiadiobi on Friday.
Police spokesman, Ikenga, said the state police commissioner, Mr Echeng Eworo, gave an order for the suspect to be arrested and questioned over the death of Okeke.

Kenechukwu was infamous for dragging many celebrities and media outfits, including CNN to court for defaming President Muhammadu Buhari and his administration during the October 2020 #EndSARS campaign.

The activist was attacked and killed in Nkpor, near Onitsha, Anambra State. His wife, Mrs Blessing Odinakachi Okeke and his daughter witnessed the attack.
