Commissioner of Police, Enugu State, CP Ahmad Abdurrahman, on Thursday said the police was treating the detained Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) member with bullet wound to make him fit to face trial.
Abdurrahman said this in a statement signed by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, and made available to newsmen in Enugu.
He said that allegation by a publication that the suspect was chained and left to bled to death was misleading information, adding that the public should disregard it.
Abdurrahman said that the suspect was taken to the hospital for treatment and was still being treated for him to be fit enough to face criminal prosecution alongside four others.
The commissioner said that the four others had already been charged to court and remanded in correctional service custody for the offences of conspiracy, treasonable felony and murder.
He said the police did not demand money for the bail of the suspect nor was his grandfather or any member of his family arrested, detained and released after extorting N55,000 at Central Police Station, Enugu as alleged.
He, however, enjoined residents of the state to remain law-abiding and guard against the spread of falsehood and baseless allegations.
