34-year-old Ifeanyi Asiatugbulam, said to be the only surviving member of late millionaire kidnapper and former police officer Corporal Collins Ezenwa aka E-money’s gang, has been arrested by operatives of the Imo State Special Armed Robbery Squad (SARS) alongside one other suspect.
The suspect was arrested alongside 20-year-old Kingsley Udo Johnson at Ikot Akwa in Nsit Atai Local Government Area in Akwa Ibom State in an operation coordinated by the SARS commander in the state, CSP Victor Godfrey.
Asiatugbulam escaped during a gun duel in which E-money and two other gang members were killed on January 27, 2018 at Atta community of Ikeduru, Imo state. Though he was arrested in another case in which one Onyia Destiny Chinyere was kidnapped and driven to their den at Oru East of Imo State, he mysteriously escaped from police custody. One AK47 rifle and 54 live 7.6mm ammunition was recovered from him at that time.
The suspects were trailed to Akwa Ibom where they were arrested in their hideout in a remote village. Asiatugbulam has confessed to the crimes and also revealed that he worked with the ate kidnap kingpin E-Money.
Imo State Police Spokesperson, Mr. Orlando Ikeokwu confirmed the arrest and also disclosed that an investigation has been launched.
