Business magnate and RAINOIL boss, Dr Gabriel Ogbechie is in police custody, BigPenngr reports.
According to information available to News Express, Ogbechie was arrested on Friday over alleged assassination plot of billionaire international lawyer and politician, Hon. Prince Ned Nwoko.
Recall that Nwoko only last week in an open letter to the Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, alerted the IGP about a plot hatched in Kuje prison to assassinate him over the Idumuje-Ugboko murder and terrorism trial.
Nwoko in the open letter urged the police to unearth the brains behind the plot to harm him.
Ogbechie who was still in police custody as at 5 o’clock on Ftiday is a native of Idumuje-Ugboko in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State and is said to be a friend of Nwoko who is also from the same village.
The oil merchant and Nwoko who is the husband of Nollywood star, Regina Daniels, reportedly parted ways over the kingship tussle in the Nwoko Royal Family , a dispute that led to mayhem in Idumuje-Ugboko between May 18 and 25, 2017, where many supporters of Prince Ned were attacked with two people, Cyprian Kumiolun and Kennedy Iloh, murdered.
Some of the alleged hoodlums involved in the Idumuje-Ugboko attacks are currently facing trial for terrorism and murder at the Federal High Court Abuja under Justice Okon Abang.
The accused, we learnt, is a supporter of Nwoko, one of the claimants to the disputed Idumuje Ugboko stool and also among the accused persons in the terrorism trial and alleged to have imported the hoodlums that visited havoc on the village in 2017.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) DCP Frank Mba could not be reached for comments as at time of going to press, as his line was continually engaged.
