Three suspects arrested for allegedly detonating explosives in Governor Nyesom Wike’s father’s church have confessed to the crime.

This much was revealed by the Rivers State Police Command. According to the police, other suspects who took part in the attack are yet to be arrested.

Revealing why they bombed the church, the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, said that the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said that they carried out the attack because they were promised juicy appointments whenever the Biafra Republic is realised.

The suspects made their confessional statements when they were paraded at the police headquarters, in Port Harcourt.

The police commissioner said investigations indicated that the IPOB suspects were behind the bomb attack. He said those arrested will be charged to court while the police are making efforts to arrest three other suspects who were also involved in the attack.

Mukan said: “They will soon be charged to court while we are trailing their sponsors. IPOB has assured them that if IPOB is achieved they will be policymakers in the government.”

One of the suspects, Owudinjo, confirmed his membership of the proscribed IPOB, adding that they were contracted to carry out the act.

Another suspect named Apuro Victor claimed they were sent by one Chinedu. He said: “The whole thing was programmed. We were sent by one Chinedu. I don’t know where he came from. I am a member of IPOB.”
