The Deputy Commissioner of Police (Operations), Anambra State Command, DCP Aderemi Adeoye, who reacted to the rumour, said no suspect who matches the name mentioned was recently arrested or in its custody.

Adeoye who spoke to DAILY POST on behalf of CP Echeng Echeng described the trending news tagged: ”My Gang Was Paid Millions By Andy Uba To Kill And Maim In Anambra” as strange as far as the Police in the State was concerned

The CP noted that there was no suspect who has made such disclosure in the custody of the police.

“There is no one in the description given that is in our custody. No one is above the law and if any such disclosure was made against anyone, whoever might be indicted in any crime would have been pulled in for questioning.
