Enugu: Police arrest 3, recover firearms, motor batteries

Operatives of Enugu State Police Command have arrested three suspected criminals and recovered firearms, ammunition and 15 motor batteries within Enugu metropolis.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, disclosed this in a statement on Monday in Enugu.

Ndukwe said that police operatives serving in Emene Division, in collaboration with law-abiding citizens recovered a Beretta pistol with 36 rounds of 0.9mm calibre ammunition on June 16, around 7 p.m.

According to him, the firearms and ammunition were recovered from a small bush where they had been abandoned around Airport Corner, by Old Abakaliki Road, Emene in Enugu.

“The exhibits were suspected to have been abandoned by criminal elements on the hot trail of the police operatives for allegations of armed robberies,” he said.

The spokesman said that in another operation, three suspects were arrested by police operatives serving in the Awkunanaw Division in Enugu on June 7, around 2 p.m.

He said that their arrest followed the conduct of a covert operation by the operatives upon the receipt of complaints about the theft of several motor vehicle batteries at a construction site in Awkunanaw axis of Enugu.

Ndukwe said that the suspects, who were initially arrested during the act, had confessed, upon interrogation, to having stolen many batteries and sold them to another suspect who was later arrested.

“15 batteries, including those of articulated and other motor vehicles and tricycles, were recovered from them,” he said.

Ndukwe said that the suspects would be arraigned and prosecuted upon conclusion of investigations.
