REPORTER: KEVIN EKEDIEGWU

Men of the Anambra State Police Command have nabbed two suspected robbers alleged to be dispossessing unsuspecting citizens of their valuables on the Second Niger Bridge.

The Police team, which was attached to Harbour Division, was on a surveillance patrol on the Bridge to prevent vandals from stealing expansion joints and were alerted to the activities of the gang near the Obosi end of the bridge.

In a statement, the Police Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr. Tochukwu Ikenga, said the Covert Police Team monitored the gang and swooped in on them, arresting two of the gangsters while others fled.

The statement explained that when the suspects were searched, two daggers and five sim cards, allegedly removed from previously stolen phones, were recovered from the suspects aged between 20 and 22.

The statement said one of the suspects hailed from Enugu State and the other from Ebonyi State.

It said the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Aderemi Adeoye, commended the Police Team for their vigilance and courage in confronting the gang and directed that owners of the recovered sim cards be located.

This is with a view to assembling evidence for a successful prosecution of the arrested suspects.
