The Police have said that the four OPC men were arrested over the burning of Wakili’s residence and death of a woman who was burnt in the building when the gun battle ensued.
The arrest of the OPC members has been condemned by many people who who flayed the security agencies for doing nothing in spite of lamentations from the people of rhe area that Wakili was the brain behind the series of kidnappings in the communities.
