The Commissioner of Police in Imo State, Taiwo Lakanu, has said that the police have intensified investigation into the murder of Celestine Onwumere, an Assistant Superintendent of Police.
Mr. Lakanu, who spoke to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), in Owerri on Thursday, said those behind the murder would soon be exposed.
“There would be no hiding place for the murderers. They would be tracked down and brought to book. The killers of the officer have stepped on the lion’s tail.
“We have stepped up our investigation into the killing with a view to bringing the perpetrators of the crime and their accomplices to book,” he said.
Mr. Onwumere, who would have retired in Dec. 2016, was killed at the premises of Mbieri Police Station by gunmen last week.
