Owerri residents went into a spontaneous frenzy Thursday, when Imo State Police Command moved the lifeless body of the dreaded serial killer, Henry Chibueze, alias Vampire, round the major streets of the municipality.
Traffic was held up for hours, at several points in Owerri, as the police convoy glided through the ever busy Bank Road, Douglas Road, Wetheral Road and back to the State Police Headquarters.
The show attracted a large crowd to the police premises, including some doubting Thomases, who were interested in knowing if Vampire was truly dead.
Some residents, who spoke to Vanguard, commended the police and the other security agencies for not only going after the fleeing Vampire, but also silencing him for life and captured his acolytes.
Reacting to what he called “this cheering news”, an Owerri based architect, Chief Amaugo Ugorji, commended the security agencies for “completing this wonderful operation in record time and for the good of the citizenry”.
Ugorji reasoned that it would have been better to capture him alive, so as to get more information from the deadly hoodlum, adding that the police should ensure that they extract as much information from Vampire’s acolytes as possible.
