Police Arrest Two Suspected Armed Robbers In Enugu

…….Recovers Firearms, Ammunition, And Other Exhibits

Enugu State Police Command’s Operatives, serving in the Nkanu East Police Division, on 3rd January 2024, at about 2.40 p.m. arrested one Chekwube Nwobodo aged 27, and Ifeanyi Edeh aged 30, both males at Obinagu-Etiti Nara-Unateze in Nkanu East Local Government Area.

A statement signed by the Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, said that the arrest of the suspects, whose other gang members escaped but are being hunted, led to the recovery of one locally fabricated pistol with two live cartridges, pieces of substance suspected to be crystal meth (otherwise known as Mpkuru-Mmiri), and a quantity of weed suspected to be marijuana.

“The suspects and gang members at large are alleged to have carried out a series of armed robberies, burglaries, and other criminal activities in the mentioned area. But having met their Waterloo, the suspects shall have the court of law to contend with once investigations are concluded, DSP Ndukwe said.

He said further, “This operational success is in alignment with the 2024 New Year assurances of the Commissioner of Police, CP Kanayo Uzuegbu, psc (+), to the good people of Enugu State, that the Command will be more proactive and forward-looking in its policing approach this new year. Hence, the CP reassures that the Police commitment to actualize this remains unwavering.
