Ihuoma Chiedozie, Enugu A security man employed by the Holy Ghost Cathedral of the Catholic Diocese of Enugu has been arrested by the police for stealing musical instruments and other communication equipment belonging to the church. The suspect, Chukwuebuka Onwe, was nabbed on June 5, 2018, as he was transporting the stolen items, including amplifiers and speakers, to meet the prospective buyers in Anambra State.
It was gathered that Onwe had earlier absconded from his duty post at the cathedral after the police traced a stolen generator, also belonging to the church, to him.
After he was declared wanted over the missing generator, the suspect, said to be a native of Ebonyi State, escaped to an unknown destination. His whereabouts was unknown until the police apprehended him with the stolen musical instruments along a road in Nkpor, Anambra State, on June 5. Spokesman of the Enugu State Police Command, Mr.
Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the development on Friday, explained that the driver of a commercial bus, who Onwe paid to transport him and the stolen goods to Anambra State, gave the suspect away. Amaraizu disclosed that, even before his arrest on June 5, Onwe had stolen about 15 musical instruments from the church, which he sold to the buyers in Anambra. Narrating how Onwe was arrested, Amaraizu said, "On that fateful day (June 5) at about 4.15 am, the suspect, who had earlier broken into the cathedral without being noticed to steal the remaining sets of musical instruments, contracted the driver of a commercial bus to take him to Nkpor, in Anambra State, where he would sell the items.
"But the driver was so observant and noticed the inscription 'Holy Ghost Cathedral, Enugu' on the speakers and other sound systems which Onwe loaded in the bus. "The driver, who suspected that the items may have been stolen, contacted police operatives who arrested the suspect around Nkpor, in Anambra State.
"After arresting Onwe, the police operatives in Nkpor got in touch with the Central Police Station, Enugu, which has been investigating the suspect's criminal activities." Copyright PUNCH.

Tianna Doucette-Moody says she feels her father is with her as she attends a trial for the man charged with assaulting and robbing her father. Sheldon Russell Bentley, 37, is on trial for the manslaughter and robbery of Donald Doucette, 51, whom court heard died on July 31, 2016. Hina Alam / Edmonton Tianna Doucette-Moody was at work when she heard her father had died.
"I couldn't believe it was true," said the petite 24-year-old as she sat in the sun-dappled area outside the courthouse. "I automatically thought that he had a seizure and he fell down and he hit his head or something ... I didn't think it was an assault. That's for sure."
Sheldon Russell Bentley, 37, is on trial for the manslaughter and robbery of Donald Doucette, 51, who died on July 31, 2016. Doucette had passed out in an alley behind a strip mall near 107 Avenue and 97 Street. Bentley is accused of robbing him of £20 and stomping on him.
Doucette-Moody said she doesn't understand why a security officer who is on duty would allegedly abuse his power. A few days before his death, she said her father had entered an addictions program for alcoholism. Her father was severely epileptic, she said.
The disease began to show itself when he was 45. He'd be in and out of the hospitals every few months for seizures. Doucette-Moody described her father as a religious, upbeat and jovial man.
A culinary chef, he mostly worked for oil companies serving dinner in commercial kitchens to about 1,000 people every night. His last job was in Whitehorse. Doucette-Moody's face lit up as she spoke about her father's love of life and cooking.
"His true passion was baking. So bread was the No.
1 thing that he really enjoyed making." Included with a thank you note at his memorial service was her father's bread recipe.
"So now my whole family makes his bread all the time," she said. "It's just a little way of everybody remembering him." His ashes were scattered atop Sulphur Mountain in Banff National Park -- one of his favourite places -- last year. In the courtroom, Doucette-Moody said she feels her father is with her.
To her right and across from Bentley is a large digital clock, which she said she looks at a few times a day. "Every day that I've been in court ... I've looked up at the clock periodically throughout the court hearing and I always happen to see the time exactly at 11:11," she said with a slight smile.
"Which I think is (dad's) way of telling me that he is sitting there with me. I mean it seems kind of silly, but I like to believe that that's what's happening and that he's trying to tell me that he's there."
