A man identified as Ozo Nweke, who was alleged to have sponsored the n*ked women protest in Awka, the Anambra state capital has been arrested by the police.

Last week, men and women from Enugwu-Agidi in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State, protested in Awka against incessant cult-related killings in their community. During the protest, they accused two police officers of aiding and abetting criminals in the area.

Some of the women stripped, exposing themselves from the waist upwards.

However, three days after, another group from the community, in a counter-protest round the police headquarters in Awka, accused Nweke, of land grabbing, intimidation, harassment, and r*pe.

The state Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, told journalists on Monday, Nov. 27, that Nweke was arrested in Abuja.

He said, “We arrested him to face prosecution.  Nweke and operatives of his company have been charged to court in three different cases, one at the Federal High Court and two at the State High Court.

“He has two cases at the Federal High Court and one at the Magistrates’ Court. So, we arrested him to answer his charges.

“These are the background details to his current media campaign of blackmail against DCP Akin Fakorede and the State CID, Awka whom he is accusing of corruption ostensibly for not siding with his criminal escapades.”
