The Anambra state police has arrested one Mr. Ozo Nweke, who allegedly sponsored nude women protest in Awka.
Last week protesters including men and women from Enugwu-Agidi in Nijikoka Local Government of Anambra state, protested on Tuesday in Awka against cult-related killings in their community which led to the accused of two police officers of aiding and abetting criminals in the area.
Three days after, another group from the same community, in a counter protest round the police headquarters in Awka, accused Nweke, of land grabbing, intimidation, harassment, and rape.
The state Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, told journalists on Monday, Nov. 27, that Nweke was arrested in Abuja.
He said, “We arrested him to face prosecution. Nweke and operatives of his company have been charged to court in three different cases, one at the Federal High Court and two at the State High Court.
“He has two cases at the Federal High Court and one at the Magistrates’ Court. So, we arrested him to answer his charges.
“These are the background details to his current media campaign of blackmail against DCP Akin Fakorede and the State CID, Awka whom he is accusing of corruption ostensibly for not siding with his criminal escapades.”
