The alleged killer was arrested today at Amichi in Nnewi South local government area of Anambra State.

The man whose name was given as Nnahadi Michael, was arrested.

Meanwhile, in the aftermath of the attacks in Anambra State wane on, the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has openly denied and distanced its members from the beheading of the lawmaker.

The Indigenous People of Biafra openly fingered the fifth columnists as the culprits who beheaded Okoye and they opined that they have been bent on destabilising its struggle in the southeast.

Spokesman of IPOB, Emma Powerful, described Okoye’s murder as an abomination which has nothing to do with the Eastern Security Network, ESN.

A statement by Powerful reads partly: “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU strongly condemn the abominable beheading of Hon. Okechukwu Okoye who was abducted a few days ago in his area. We want to also state categorically that contrary to insinuations in some quarters, the Indigenous people of Biafra IPOB could not in any way have had anything to do with this abominable act. It is imperative to state here that enemies of Biafra freedom and traitors in our region are seriously pulling all stunts to derail the freedom of our leader and the freedom of our dear Nation Biafra.
