Firearms recovered, robbery suspects arrested by Enugu Polic

A Beretta pistol with thirty-six rounds of .9 mm calibre ammunition has been recovered by the operatives of the Enugu State Police Command.

The gun was discovered in a bush at Airport Corner, by Old Abakaliki Road, Emene, Enugu around 7 pm on Sunday.

The EONS INTELLIGENCE in a report revealed the exhibits were suspected to have been abandoned by criminal elements on the hot trail of the police operatives for allegations of armed robberies.

In a different operation, one Eze Ebuka, aged 24, Nnamdi Chukwuemeka, aged 21, and Friday Ilo, aged 31, all males, were arrested on June 7, 2024, around 2 p.m., by police operatives serving in the Awkunanaw Division of the State Command.

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, Enugu.

Eze Ebuka and Nnamdi Chukwuemeka, who were initially arrested in the act, upon interrogation confessed to having stolen many batteries, as alleged, and sold them to Friday Ilo, who was later arrested.

Fifteen batteries, including those of articulated and other motor vehicles, and tricycles, were recovered from them.
