Police Kill One Suspected IPOB/ESN Member, Recover Arms In Enugu

Police Operatives serving in Igbo-Eze North Police Division of the Command and the NPF Special Forces, working with the Neighborhood Watch Group, on Saturday, neutralized a suspected IPOB/ESN subversive criminal at Igbele village by Amachala road in Igbo-Eze North Local Government Area.

This is contained in a statement issued on Sunday in Enugu by Daniel Ndukwe, Police Public Relations Officer, Enugu State Command.

Ndukwe said the operation was possible following the policing strategies devised by the Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Command, Mr Kanayo Uzuegbu, to rid the State of unrepentant criminals.

According to him, 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-coloured beret each were recovered from the neutralized member of the outlawed group.

He said 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.
