Police Operatives Neutralize IPOB/ESN Suspect In Enugu
…. recover firearm, ammunition, amulets, and other exhibits
…as CP Kanayo commends the operatives, and says the onslaught against unrepentant criminals remains on course
The Police Operatives serving in Igbo-Eze North Police Division of the Command and the NPF Special Forces, working with the Neighborhood Watch Group, on October 21, 2023, at about 10.45 p.m., neutralized a suspected IPOB/ESN subversive criminal at Igbele village by Amachala road in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area, in pursuance of the policing strategies devised by the Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Command, CP Kanayo Uzuegbu to rid the State of unrepentant criminals.
According to a press release signed by the Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, said that One pump action gun loaded with four live cartridges, three expended cartridges, objects suspected to be amulets, and one black (inscribed “Special Constabulary”) and yellow-colored beret each were recovered from the neutralized member of the outlawed group.
DSP Ndukwe further said that the feat is consequent upon the operatives’ swift response to credible information on the wanton criminal activities of the renegades, who, in their numbers, blocked the road and opened fire on them. The Operatives, however, tactically returned fire at a superior level, leaving many other members of the subversive criminal group escaping with varying degrees of gunshot wounds.
Meanwhile, the CP, while commending the team for the job well done, has reassured the commitment of the Command to sustain the onslaught against unrepentant criminals. He, therefore, entreats citizens of Enugu State to continue to support the Police.
