It was gathered that a quarrel had broken out between Oba and the deceased, whose name was given as Mrs. Uzoamaka Ekpe, which later resulted in a fight.

However, a press release by the Anambra State Police Command’s Spokesperson, DSP. Toochukwu Ikenga, revealed that the suspect had been arrested.

“The body has been deposited to the morgue and the suspect is in custody. The case shall be charged to court after investigations,” he stated.

Meanwhile, the State Commissioner of Police, CP. Echeng Echeng, has advised members of the public not to yield to uncontrollable anger at all times as it could be dangerous.
