The Enugu State Police Command Operatives have arrested three (3) male suspects for vandalism and also recovered a firearm and ammunition in a different operation.

According to a press release signed by the Enugu State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, said that acting on a tip-off, the Operatives serving in Awkunanaw Police Division of the Command, on May 30, 2024, around 7.30 p.m., arrested three male suspects, comprising one Odeh Chijioke aged 26, Okwudili Onwe, aged 38, both of Ishielu L.G.A. of Ebonyi State and Igwe Chidera aged 20, of Nkerefi in Nkanu East L.G.A. Their arrest led to the recovery of yet-to-be-quantified pieces of iron rails vandalized at the pedestrian crossing bridge at Holy Ghost/Ogbete Market, Enugu.

In a different operation, Police Operatives serving in Awkunanaw Division of the Command, on May 29, 2024, around 10 p.m., swiftly responded to a distress call alleging the operation of armed robbers in a compound at Awkunanaw, Enugu. The quick response led to the averting of the criminal act and the recovery of a locally fabricated double-barreled gun loaded with two (2) live cartridges, which the suspects abandoned and escaped upon sighting the Operatives.

The arrested suspects will be arraigned and prosecuted once the investigation is concluded, while a discreet investigation is underway to apprehend the armed robbery suspects on the run.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Kanayo Uzuegbu has appreciated the citizens whose information on the criminal activities made the operational successes possible. He, however, tasks the citizenry to continue to support the police by promptly reporting suspected criminals and their activities to the nearest Police Station.
