The Bayelsa State Police Command has arrested a suspected notorious cult leader and armed robber, Mr Prince Owei, alias Big Fela.

Owei, an indigene of Ikebiri community of Southern Ijaw, who was resident in Ovom, Yenagoa, is suspected to be the killer of James Onuh, a member of the National Youth Service Corps in the Obele area of Yenagoa.

Onuh, who was a graduate of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Benue State, was attached to the Bayelsa State Ministry of Works and Infrastructure for his primary assignment.

He was allegedly shot dead at Obele junction, Yenagoa, while using the Automated Teller Machine in 2016.

It was gathered that the suspect, who was arrested by a special tactical team of the state police command following an order of the state Commissioner of Police, Austin Iwar, had served at the Okaka Medium Prison and Ahoada Maximum Prison for offences ranging from cult activities to robberies and killings.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Bayelsa State Command, Asinim Butswat, confirmed the arrest of Owei, adding that the suspect was arrested at the Samson Siasia Sports Complex, Yenagoa.

Butswat said, “On September 20, 2018, around 4.10pm, police operatives arrested a notorious cult leader and robber, who was on the wanted list of the Bayelsa State Police Command.

“The suspect, Prince Owei, aka Big Fela, was arrested at the Sports Complex, Yenagoa, on his way to watch a football match.

“A locally-made revolver pistol, one live cartridge and packets of Rohypnol tablets, were recovered from him. The suspect, a jailbird and a confessed member of the Icelanders cult, will be charged to court when investigations are concluded.”
