The Magistrate Court sitting in Issele-Uku Magisterial District in Aniocha North local government area of Delta State on Wednesday, ordered the remand of Prince Chukwunonso Justin Nwoko a.k.a Obi Nonso and five others in police custody over alleged murder, pending the determination of the case at the next court sitting.
The Delta State Police Command (Homicide Section) had charged the Idumuje-Ugboko Prince to court after concluding their investigations on his involvement in the murder and unlawful disposal of the body of a motorcycle rider, Cyprian Kumaoro during the 2017 intra-communal violence allegedly instigated by Prince Nonso Nwoko.
Prince Nonso was charged alongside other suspects; Chetachukwu Okolo, Onyeisi Isuzor, Ifejoku Okey, Prince Ejimofor Nwoko and Prince Obiajulu Richard Nwoko for murder and criminal conspiracy.
Recall that Prince Nonso Nwoko was arrested by a team of policemen on July 17, 2020 and released on self-recognition on July 18, 2020. He was later invited for further questioning over the murder of Cyprian Kumaoro following the confession of two suspects earlier arrested and charged on the same matter.
