The Enugu State Police Command said it has apprehended a three-man gang of armed robbery suspects responsible for dispossessing people of their valuables on Udi-Ozalla-Four Corner Road near Enugu.
A stolen motorcycle and one cut to size single barrel gun was recovered from the suspects by the Police.
SP Ebere Amaraizu, the Public Relation Officer of the state police command, in a statement in Enugu on Saturday confirmed the arrest of the suspects.
The Police spokesman attributed the arrest of the suspects to the vigilant of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) Enugu State Command.
“The suspects had conspired and robbed an Okada rider of his motorcycle at gun-point on Aug. 28 along Udi-Ozalla-Four Corner Road, having posed as passengers and unknown to the owner that they are armed robbers.
“They later escaped to an unknown destination; but following intelligence information, all the suspects were arrested.
“One of the suspects, Ikechukwu Emenike, revealed that he needed to get a motorcycle to convert as a tricycle and to be giving Ugochukwu Esom some money for settlement for assisting him and the person that gave them the gun.”
Amaraizu said a full scale investigation had commenced on the matter while the suspects had been helping police operatives in their investigation.
