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.
A close source from the police told our reporter that the suspected assassins including one who claimed he pulled the trigger on the victim had made mind-blowing confessional statements.
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.
