Police authorities in Anambra State have successfully apprehended a criminal gang consisting of four individuals accused of conducting targeted burglaries primarily aimed at commercial shops across the state.

The spokesperson for the Anambra State Police Command, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, revealed that the operatives of the command swiftly responded to a tip-off that ultimately led to the arrest of the suspects.

According to Ikenga: “Following information received on August 30th, 2023, the police swiftly moved to the gang’s concealed location and established a secure perimeter to prevent any potential escape by the members of the gang.”

He continued, “All four suspects, hailing from Ebonyi State, were apprehended, and a variety of items were recovered from their possession.”

The recovered items, as listed by Ikenga, include “two motorcycles designed for women, two substantial power generators, a wheelbarrow, a deep freezer, three bags of rice, and two large iron cutters.”

Upon further investigation, the suspects reportedly admitted to breaking into a store situated in Nanka within the Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State, from which the recovered items were stolen.

Commending the proactive efforts of CSP Uche Onyinaya, the newly assigned Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Ogidi, for swiftly making an arrest and recovering a Baretta Pistol from a suspected cultist, the Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, emphasized the importance of maintaining the momentum against criminal elements.

CP Adeoye also instructed that the ongoing investigation should extend to Nanka, aimed at identifying the owner of the store, and to the Motor Licensing Office to ascertain the ownership records of the motorcycles. This step will facilitate the return of the recovered items to their rightful owners under bond arrangements. The suspects are slated to appear in court as soon as the investigation concludes.
