As many as four suspects have been arrested in Ebonyi State by the police.
The suspects were nabbed over the killing of two Ebubeagu Security operatives in Ebonyi State.
Recall that the victims were shot at the popular Ebebe junction, along Ogbaga road in Abakaliki.

In a telephone chat with Vanguard, the Commander of Ebubeagu Security outfit in Ebonyi State, Mr. Friday Nnana who confirmed the arrest of the suspects, noted that the suspects have been handed over to the police for further investigation.
“On a strong routine patrol last night, we caught the killer of the two members of Ebubeagu Security outfit who lost their lives at a checkpoint at Ebebe junction in Abakaliki.”
