Two Suspected Armed Robbers Arrested By Police In Onitsha

Listen to article

The police in Anambra State have arrested no fewer than two-armed robbery suspects from Enugu and Ebonyi states who were allegedly robbing people on the Sec­ond Niger Bridge in Onitsha.

Unbeknownst to the robbers, the police surveillance patrol team on the bridge was informed of the gang’s actions close to the Obosi end of the bridge. Their goal was to stop vandals from stealing expansion joints.

Some members of the gang, however, fled the scene when the covert Police team swooped on them while two of the gangsters were ar­rested, according to a press statement signed by the Po­lice Public Relations Officer, Ikenga Tochukwu, a Deputy Superintendent of Police.

The Eastern Updates reports that incident happened yesterday.

Meanwhile, the Commis­sioner of Police, Mr. Aderemi Adeoye, has commended the Police team for its vigilance and courage in confronting the gang.

CP Adeoye consequently directed that the owners of the recovered SIM cards be located with a view to as­sembling evidence for the successful prosecution of the arrested suspects.
