Godwin Onyebuchi,aka Papa G, has been nabbed by the operatives of Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Imo State Police Command. He was reportedly arrested in his hideout in a polytechnic hostel.

The arrest of the notorious kidnapper, armed robbers and serial killer, made residents of Owerri to jubilate, including police officers who gathered to have a glimpse of him.

Southern City News gathered that the suspect, who had escaped arrests, had been on the wanted list of the police for a long time.

According to a police source, who does not want his name in print, Onyebuchi was nabbed on Saturday at Solo Lodge hostel located around Federal Polytechnic, Nekede.

The hostel, until his arrest, served as his hiding place after deadly operations.

“In order to beat police investigation, he uses that hostel as a hiding place after deadly operations. He pretends to be a student. He knew police were tracking him.

“So, he does not have a phone. He borrows phones to make calls if there were needs for telephone conversation,” the source told Southern City News.

The suspect, the source added, was responsible for the kidnapping of a popular gospel singer, Chinedu Nwadike, and one Rev. Columba Okereke in August 2017.

“In August, 2017, a gang of armed robbers and kidnappers led by Godwin Onyebuchi, who operates between Imo and Abia states, abducted a popular gospel singer, Chinedu Nwadike, and Rev. Columba Okereke.

“The gang collected the Lexus 350 model car of one of their victims while a ransom of N5m was paid. The hoodlums equally collected other valuables from the victims.

“Acting on intelligence, the operatives of Federal Special Anti Robbery Squad of the Imo State Police Command, led by their commander, SP Victor Godfrey, swooped on him at his hideout, Solo Lodge hostel, Nekede, on Saturday and arrested him. On sighting the F-SARS operatives, he jumped down from the three-storey building and broke one of his legs,” the source further disclosed.

Our correspondent gathered that the suspect was rushed to police clinic, Amakaohia, Owerri, where he was receiving medical attention

It was gathered that two kidnap victims and the suspect’s gang members in the police detention had identified him as the ring leader.

    That photo is clear enough to define his features, plus victims’ positive identification of him. Don’t forget he cleverly avoided detection and didn’t even possess a cell phone, so getting clear photos of him would have been an uphill task. Kudos to the Police Department for the arrest. Such a young man who chose a vicious lifestyle for a living.

    So many criminals hiding in the midst of students and foolish students will be thinking he’s a fellow student from a rich home and looking forward to being friends with him. I wont be surprised if some of the naive or greedy female students are pregnant for him by now

    His judgment day has arrived. His cup is now over filled. Let him face the law and the sentence he gave to those he killed. Look at his ugly face.

    His arrest does not worth celebration because he will soon bribe his way back into the street. If we must end crime in Nigeria, I think it lies on powerful people in bureaucracy especially in the justice department. This guy should either be killed or not given an opportunity to see the street for the rest of his natural life but mark my words, this guy will bribe the mumu officers and they will tell the public that he escape and that will be the end of the case. In order to corroborate my statements, where is Kabiru Sokoto? where is Evans? where are some notorious criminals previously arrested and convicted? We are our own destroyer.
