The Imo State Police Command on Thursday said that it had discovered a uniform belonging to one of its officers who was declared missing in 2017.
The police also arrested six persons said to be members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), one of whom is the husband of the slain officer.
Police Public Relations Officer, CSP Michael Abatham, said that the breakthrough followed credible information.
“In the course of interrogation, the suspects confessed to have murdered late Inspector Felicia Nwagbara who was the second wife to one of the suspects, Casmire Mgbugba.
“They further stated that they are the manufacturers of the locally made guns recovered from them, that apart from using them in perpetrating crimes they sell to robbers and kidnappers.”
