There are strong indications that five of the suspects who have been arrested in connection with the assassination of a Port Harcourt based Human Right Activist, Ken Atsuwete, have been transferred to Force Headquarters in Abuja for investigations.
It was gathered that the transfer was in compliance with the directives by the Inspector General of Police Monitoring Unit responsible for the arrest.
The source said preliminary investigation revealed that the suspects were earlier kept in the custody of Special Anti-Robbery Squad before moving them to the state criminal investigation Department Headquarters in Port Harcourt and thereafter moved to Abuja for further investigations.
He further disclosed that, “The suspects were meant to be paraded sometime last week if not for the incident between the DSS and the Judges. It took a lot of time to decide whether to even parade them or not.”
It would be recalled that the Human Rights Lawyer was murdered few months ago by unknown assassins in Omuchiorlu, Aluu in Ikwerre Local government area of Rivers state.
