Though details of his death are still sketchy, Chukwu  was said to have been shot dead and then burnt inside the vehicle he was in. It was gathered that the deceased was gunning for the senate, with his opponents being Chimaroke Nnamani (PDP) and of Ada Ogbu (APC).

CSP Patrick Agbazue

 Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Patrick Agbazue, officer in charge of State Criminal and Investigation and the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) annex Awkuzu in Anambra State, and his team have been arrested and transferred to Abuja, the nation’s capital. 

The reason for their arrest and transfer has been linked to allegations of misconduct, abuse of power, organ harvesting and violation of human rights.
According to reports, CSP Agbazue and his team were accused of extorting money from motorists and traders around Onitsha and its environs. They were also accused of subjecting innocent citizens to inhumane treatment, including torture and unlawful detention. The arrest and transfer of CSP Agbazue and his team were carried out by the Police Service Commission (PSC) after an investigation into the allegations of misconduct. The PSC is responsible for overseeing the conduct of police officers and ensuring that they adhere to ethical standards and best practices in their duties. The development has been welcomed by human rights groups and other concerned citizens, who have long advocated for the reform of the Nigerian police force. They see it as a step in the right direction towards curbing the excesses of police officers who engage in unprofessional conduct, abuse of power, and violation of citizens’ rights. It is expected that CSP Agbazue and his team will be subjected to disciplinary action, and if found guilty, they will face the full wrath of the law. This should serve as a warning to other police officers who engage in similar acts of misconduct, that they will not go unpunished.
