Detectives attached to the Mon­itoring Unit of the Imo State police command have arrest­ed two General Overseers (GO) for alleged gunrunning. The sus­pects, Clifford Nmenabu, founder, God Covenant of Christ the King Sabbath Missionary and Festus Daniel Igwe of Zion House of Prayer Sabbath Mission­ary were alleged to have procured five AK47 rifles for use during the forthcom­ing general elections.

Speaking on how the suspects were busted, the state Commissioner of Police, Abdulmajid Ali told Saturday Sun that the command acted on a tip-off which indi­cated that the suspects had acquired some firearms. According to him: “On February 13, 2015, policemen led by the officer in charge of the Monitoring Unit, Superin­tendent of Police, Linus Nwaiwu stormed their churches in Oru East Local Govern­ment Area, arrested and recovered all the guns.”

CP Ali explained that in the course of in­vestigation, it was discovered that the cler­ics were contracted by one Mr K. Nnamdi who they claim is based in London.

“The two clerics were given an advance cash of N300,000 for 10 pieces of AK 47 rifles and to be given a cash balance of N1.2million as soon as they deliver. The suspects were nabbed when they were about to hand over the five AK47 rifles to a group of persons who claim to be repre­senting Biafra in the church premises of Pastor Igwe.”

The police boss also said that his com­mand has declared Nnamdi wanted and would charge the suspects to court at the end of the investigation.

One of the suspects, Pastor Nmenabu, 67, said that apart from his ministry, he is dealing in arms. “I am the General Overse­er of God Covenant of Christ the King Sab­bath Missionary. I have been in the minis­try for over 35 years. I am also into buying and selling of arms and ammunition. I was listening to Radio Biafra London when the broadcaster, who introduced himself as Nnamdi, gave out a number through which he can be reached. I called him and he ex­plained that he is the coordinator of the popular Biafra group.

“I told him who I am and what I can do for the group. He gave me the contract and I decided to ask my fellow priest, Igwe who has contacts. He offered to pay N1.2 mil­lion for 10 AK47 rifles. He gave us N300, 000 as a deposit. We were waiting for the balance when policemen stormed my house and arrested us”, he confessed.The second suspect, High Priest Festus Igwe, 63, said that he is willing to assist the police to track down Nnamdi who is currently on the run. “I am the GO of the Zion House of Prayers Sabbath Mission. I was in the church, when Pastor Nmenabu contacted me that there is a good business on ground. I rushed to his church and gave me the details. Luckily, I still had contact with some arms dealers in Imo state.

He also introduced me to Nnamdi who gave us an advance fee of N300,000.

“We had delivered the five AK47 rifles and was waiting for Nnamdi to bring the balance when the police arrived. I am very sorry. I am ready to assist the police to track down Nnamdi”, he stated.

    PLEASE PARDON ME, I JUST HAVE TO USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE MY OWN TESTIMONY ON HOW I WAS CURED OF HIV WITH THE HELP OF Dr BOADI TATAHWE HERBAL MEDICINE. Finding out that you or a love one is HIV positive can be an incredibly shattering experience. And I think the eason for this is everyone is under the false assumption that the virus is not curable. Well, i totally disagree with this. I was diagnosed of HIV for the past 5 years using the Antiviral drugs, with the curiosity and search for a parmanent cure i came across a blog and i saw lot of testimonies post from people making references to DOCTOR BOADI how he used his natural herbal medicine to cure them of their diseases Some testimonies was centered on;
    *HIV (with a very low cd4 count)
    I decided to give it a trial, though i never believed in herbal medicine but i was in a way convinced with the sort of amazing testimonies i saw online i decided to contact him, with the response he gave, He promised to prepare and send the "TATAHWE" Medicine to me. It was not up to a week after i placed an order, I got the medicine and he instructed me on how to drink the medicine( only evenings before bed) after which completely taking the medicine , I should go back to the hospital for a Re-Test. I followed his instructions and i discovered that each time i take the medicine my urine will became yellowish and i will be sweating for good two weeks so immediately i finished the medicine i went for the test the following week, it was very surprising i tested negative. this is my 4th month since i was cured and i always go for comfirmation every month just to be very sure even my doctor had to request for his contact because its very surprising. I can't thank dr Boadi enough, so i decided to tell of his medicine and also to stop the spread of this virus just like i promised him. you can relate with Dr Boadi on:
