Tuesday, February 4, 2020

The Anambra State Police Command has arrested six armed robbery suspects that specialize in car snatching and other criminal activities.

The suspects, mostly married men with kids, in their thirties and forties, were arrested in different parts of Anambra and Delta States last month.

Parading the suspects on Tuesday, the State Commissioner of Police, Mr John Abang, said that one of the suspects; 42-year-old Micheal Obinna from Achina, Aguata Council Area of Anambra State, was released from prison six months ago for the same crime, and specializes in buying stolen cars from suspects.

He noted that the state remains infertile to any degree of criminal activity, and urged residents to always provide information that could help to fight crime.

Items recovered from the suspects include one Beretta pistol, one locally fabricated pistol, and one car tracking jammer.
