The Police in Rivers State have arrested a notorious cult leader, Nwimene Kapeh, who allegedly beheaded a pharmacist, Sunday Monaale, in Zaakpor Community, Khana Council of the state.

A top police officer, who pleaded anonymity, told journalists in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, that operatives of the state police command arrested the suspect, who was said to have committed the crime in 2019 in presence of the deceased’ wife, Mrs. Pretty Sunday but fled the community after committing the crime.

Meanwhile, the widow expressed delight over the arrest of Kapeh and pleaded that justice be carried out on the killer of her husband.

Pretty, who spoke during a programme aired on Rhythm 93.7 F.m Port Harcourt, which was monitored by newsmen, said the family had been in pains since her husband was killed two years ago.


“I am the wife of the late Sunday Monaale, who was beheaded by Kapeh on March 5, 2019 in my presence and in the presence of his 90 year-old mother.

I thank the Commissioner of Police (CP) and his team who arrested the culprit after over two years. I call on the police authority and the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, to help me get justice because things have never remained the same since my husband was killed,” she said.

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Nnamdi Omoni, did not respond to calls made to his telephone.
