The Enugu State Police Command has arrested a suspected armed robbery kingpin, Arinze Ugwu, whose armed gang had been terrorising Orba Community and its environs in Udenu Local Government Area of the state.
A small hand bag containing a locally made pistol with 17 live cartridges and a fez cap was recovered from the suspect. The arrest followed information gathered after an incident in which the suspect and his gang members had on May 16, snatched a motorcycle from its owner at gun point and took off to an unknown destination.
Following intelligence information, a manhunt of suspects was intensified at their hideout in which Arinze Ugwu was arrested while others escaped into the bush.
The state’s Commissioner of Police, Mr. Sulaiman Balarabe, assured members of the public of his command’s continued effort through Operation Puff Adder to keep the state safe and secured.
