The Police in Lagos on Monday said they arrested four men over the alleged murder of a businessman, Emmanuel Ubah (aka Onwa), in Festac Town.

The Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Imohimi Edgal, who confirmed the arrest to journalists, said that the arrest was made after a family member of the deceased petitioned the police over the murder.

Mr. Edgal said that the Inspector- General of Police Intelligence Response Team, IRT, investigated the case after receiving the petition in August.

“The petitioner, a pastor, alleged that on 21 July, at about 8 p.m., he received a phone call that the deceased had been murdered by some gunmen at Festac Town, Lagos and robbed of his three mobile phones.

“In the course of investigation, the I-G IRT were deployed to Festac Town/ Iba Estate respectively to unravel the mystery surrounding the murder where all the suspects were arrested.

“All suspects will be charged to court soon,” Mr. Edgal said. (NAN)
