No fewer than 20 victims of a serial armed robbery suspect, Chinemerem Elebeke ( alias Meskana), who has been terrorizing Onitsha and its environs, have commended the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Fegge, Onitsha police station, Mr Gurba Rabiu, on hearing arrest of the bandit.

The victims, most of who were dispossessed of their belongings and cash at gun point described the armed robber as “one in a million” whose name sends them jittery wherever is mentioned.

According to the DPO, Mr Rabiu, “He has robbed over 30 innocent victims at different locations in Anambra State including Ogbaru, Fegge, Odoakpu, Inland town and environs and got away with it.

“He has been a great terror to residents of those areas and for long we have been trailing him and I know that if we don’t get him my area will remain unsafe. As God will have it on a tip-off that he was somewhere at Odoakpu, we mobilized and on getting there, arrested him”.

“Since his arrest victims of his armed robbery escapade have continued to flood the station only to have a glimpse of him and he confessed robbing more than 30 people”, he revealed.

“His parents physically came in here begging for his release with N1million but you know money is not for everything. This is somebody who has caused  much trauma to the society including a pastor.

“Among places he confessed to have robbed included,, petrol filling stations , shops, markets and some residential homes and people heaved  a sigh of relief.
According to him, the suspect will be charged to court immediately, as soon as we are through with our investigation”.
