The CP gave the assurance when the people of Umuowaibu Community in Okigwe LGA staged a protest against their three sons at the Imo State Police Command, Owerri.
The Imo Police Commissioner told the angry protesters that the police are on top gear to get to the root of the matter and to deal with the culprits.
“Do not panic. They shall face the wrath of the law and we are still investigating the matter”, the CP said.
The CP promised to rescue all the persons allegedly kidnapped by the suspects, vowing that “we shall drag them to the Okigwe Court for further prosecution”.
The Oracle Today in Owerri gathered that luck ran out of the gang as they alleged stole and killed a -3-year old baby boy on Dec.14th, 2017.
The protesters carried placards with various inscriptions, chanting all forms of war songs and demanding the Police Command to prosecute the suspects whom they said were child traffickers, murderers, armed robbers and ritualists, stressing that they had been terrorizing the community over the years.
The President General of the community, Mr. Kenneth Alamanjo, who was also the leader of the protesters, said the community was happy that the 3-man-ritual-gangsters has been arrested by the Police in Okigwe and are cooling in the net at the State Command.
Speaking on behalf of the women, the woman leader, Mrs.Helen Akazie, expressed worry over what she described as wickedness against humanity and divinity by the suspects.
She said they were threats to the entire community following their alleged involvement in child trafficking and so many other evil activities against Umuowaibu Community.
The woman leader further disclosed that the community have evidence against the suspects but called on the police to bring them to book.
She described the suspects as bandits, kidnappers and ritualists, saying that they do not want the progress of their community.
“Our prayers, requests and supplications to God at the community market square divinely pushed them to surrender themselves to the police”, she said.
