4 suspected killers of retired Army General nabbed in Abuja

The police have arrested four suspected to be involved in the killing of a retired Brigadier General, Uwem Udokwere, in his Abuja home.

The Utako Police Division stated this in a report it issued Sunday.

Udokwere was murdered at his house No. 9 Sanga Street Sunshine Homes by Kabusa Junction, Lokogoma, Abuja, during a robbery attack.

The sudden death of the former army officer has left his wife and two children in grief and the whole community in panic.

The chairman of the estate, Odulami Ayotunde, said the report was given to its residents Monday.

“We went to the police station and we were told that one of them dropped his phone and they tracked it and arrested him and others,” he said.

The report listed those arrested as Ibrahim Rabiu ‘m’ 33 years, from Dala LGA Kano state and resident at Rasha Apo Roundabout, Nafiu Jamil, ‘m’ 33 years,  from Tofa LGA, Kano, but resident at Apo Pantekar,  Aliyu Abdullahi ‘m’ 47 yrs, from Shinkafi LGA of Zamfara state and resident at Apo Roundabout, Abuj, and Mohammed Nuhu ‘m’ 28 yrs, from Kumbotso LGA, Kano state, also resident at Apo Primary School.
