Murder Suspect Finally Arrested After Days of Manhunt by Police

Man who murdered a 35 - year - old farmer, Mathew Namison, for alleged romance with his wife at Kpentaung, near Bunkpurugu in the Northeast Region has been arrested by the police. The suspect, Kampii Ningpeen Yennu, turned himself in at the Bunkpurugu District Police Command following days of manhunt. According to ASP Robert Anaabik Anmain, the Acting Police Public Relations Officer of the Northeast Region, after realising the police were closing in on him, Kampii Ningpeen Yennu turned himself in at the Bunkpurugu District Police Command where he was taken into custody and detained for further investigations.

Preliminary investigations revealed that Kampii Yennu sneaked into the room of the deceased whom he suspected of having an amorous relationship with his spouse and shot him with a gun during the early hours of Friday, October 1. He however fled from the scene before police could arrive, living behind the AK47 rifle he used to carry out the heinous crime. 

The police launched a manhunt for him and an undisclosed bounty was placed on his head with the people of Kpentaung and those in the Bunkpurugu township encouraged to report to nearby stations with any information that could lead to his arrest. His photographs were subsequently released to aid his easy identification by the public.
