The police in Ebonyi have captured a previous Commissioner for Border Peace and Conflict Resolution in the state, Donatus Ajah, on charges of murder.
Ajah is being blamed for complicity in the death of a 46-year-elderly man recognized as Azubuike Inya. The deceased was purportedly slaughtered by criminals who dispensed machete wounds on him that prompted his death.
As indicated by the police, both Mr. Ajah and the late Mr. Inya are from Amankwo town in Nkpoghoro community in the Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. Examinations uncovered that the executing was occasioned by an intra-communal emergency including the two groups of Amankwo town.
One of the groups is supposed to be driven by Mr. Ajah while another group is driven by one Ifeanyi Obila. The two gatherings have continually conflicted in the community as they struggled for incomparability and control of the community.
As indicated by reports, on May 23, some gangsters assaulted a bar in the town and incurred machete wounds on anybody in sight. Inya knew about the assault and promptly ran there to stop the slaughter. His pleas on the aggressors failed to attract anyone’s attention as they went to him and perpetrated profound machete wounds on him which prompted his demise.
Relatives of the deceased demand that the hoodlums were from the camp of the previous Commissioner.
Representative of the state police order, Loveth Odah, who affirmed Ajah’s arrest, said.
“Yes he is in our custody. We are still investigating the matter,”
