He said that the 48 years old Eze, a native of Umoneke Nta, Isiala-Mbano Local Government Area of Imo, had on May 4, escaped when operatives of the Intelligence Response Team (IRT) stormed Isiala Mbano where he was lying low, which led to an intensive manhunt towards tracing and arresting him.

According to him, Eze was finally seized on Wednesday in Aba after weeks of unending follow-ups by operatives.

Aurum Eze is one of the main sponsors of the numerous killings in Imo State and has been on the wanted list of security agents for more than three months.

Many of the arrested IPOB/ESN had earlier mentioned him as their key sponsor, mastermind and Second in Command to late Ikonso.

According to them, amongst all their leaders in Imo State, only Ikonso and Awurum have a direct communication link with Nnamdi Kanu.

He can be seen in several photographs posing with the fugitive terrorist leader, Nnamdi Kanu. An investigation by the combined team of security operatives continues, he said.
