A crack team of Policemen from Force Headquarters Abuja, on Wednesday last week arrested Mr Sunday Okoro Ukwejemifor (AKA G1), a notorious criminal and leader of the dreaded White Ladder cult group, who has been terrorizing Sapele and its environs over an alleged assassination attempt on Mr Sunny Nwakego.
Mr Okoro, a Special Assistant on Security Matters to Delta State governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has been on the watch list of security operatives since 2009 as a result of his alleged involvement in kidnapping, arson, unresolved murder and armed robbery.
He was arrested along with six others; Ayomanor Tobore, Romeo Okoro, Precious Oghaje, Blessing Isaba, Eseoghene Ogheneovo and Iwarri Mosco.
His arrest, our correspondent gathered was a fallout of a failed assassination attempt on Mr Sunny Nwakego, a prominent businessman in Sapele, whom Okoro allegedly hired five hitmen from Port-Harcourt, Rivers State to kill, but luck ran out of them, leading to the arrest of three of the suspects, while two others are at large.
