The Enugu Police Command has recovered locally-fabricated arms and ammunition from criminals over the past two weeks.
Additionally, security operatives apprehended four suspects linked to the recoveries, as disclosed by the police spokesman, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, on Monday in Enugu.
Ndukwe provided details of the operations, stating, “On Dec. 7, operatives foiled a robbery attempt in the state capital where they arrested a 29-year-old male suspect and recovered one locally-made pistol from him. His accomplices fled the scene.”
He continued, “On Nov. 26, operatives arrested a 26-year-old male in the state capital and recovered a locally-fabricated double-barrel pistol from him. In a related development, operatives on routine ‘stop-and-search’ duty on Enugu-Onitsha Expressway arrested a 22-year-old male who had two live cartridges on him.”
Furthermore, Ndukwe highlighted a case of ATM fraud, saying, “Operatives, in conjunction with security guards at a commercial bank, arrested a 26-year-old in the state capital on Dec. 6 for swapping ATM cards of bank customers. Several ATM cards bearing different names were recovered from him. He confessed to having been engaged in ATM swapping crime for some time. His gang members escaped, however.”
The Commissioner of Police in Enugu State, Mr. Kanayo Uzuegbu, reiterated the police’s commitment to maintaining maximum security, law, and order, especially during the yuletide.
He urged citizens to remain law-abiding, vigilant, and continue supporting the police with credible information to further rid the state of criminals.
