Police Arrest Two, Recover Firearms In Enugu



Operatives of the Nigeria Police Force, Enugu said they have arrested two armed robbery suspects.

The suspects include, One Chekwube Nwobodo aged 27, and Ifeanyi Edeh aged 30, both males.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe in a statement issued on Monday said the suspects were arrested at Obinagu-Etiti Nara-Unateze in Nkanu East Local Government Area on Wednesday January 3, 2024, at about 2.40 p.m. by Enugu State Police Command’s Operatives, serving in the Nkanu East Police Division, following their swift response to a distress call.


Ndukwe said 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.

He said 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.

The police PPRO said the operational success was in alignment with the 2024 New Year assurances of the Commissioner of Police, Kanayo Uzuegbu, 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.
