He said one of the suspects, Chukwunonso Emmanuel, was arrested in Lagos while trying to obtain a new number plate for the general’s Mercedes Benz car.

Okoye added that Emmanuel’s arrest led to the arrest of the other two members of the gang, Okoroigwe Goodness and Innocent Ogu who had since confessed to the crime.
