Six suspects engaging in crimes ranging from “one chance” robbery, unlawful possession and trafficking of suspected cocaine, weed (“Ghana Loud”), theft of a motor vehicle battery, a tricycle (Keke), and a church organ keyboard, have been arrested by the Enugu State Police Command.

This was made known in a statement by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, on its X handle on Monday.

The statement read in part, “Police operatives serving in different divisions of the Enugu State Police Command have arrested a total of six male suspects for the offences of “one chance” robbery, unlawful possession and peddling of suspected cocaine, stealing of a motor vehicle battery, a tricycle (Keke), and a church organ keyboard.

“Two tricycles, one motor vehicle battery, one organ keyboard, wraps of substances suspected to be cocaine, and quantities of weeds suspected to be “Ghana Loud” were recovered from the suspects.

“Accordingly, police operatives serving in the Independence Layout Police Division of the Command, working with law-abiding citizens, on April 18, 2024, around 10am., arrested one Edeh Chibuike “m”, aged 44, and recovered a yello-coloured Bajaj tricycle with registration number NSK 218 QA.

“The suspect and his cohorts who escaped, operating in the recovered tricycle, are alleged to have robbed their female victim and passenger of her iPhone and Bank’s ATM Card at Nwakanwa Street, Independence Layout, Enugu.

“The suspect and gang members were given a hot chase by law-abiding citizens, which caused their keke to skid off the road into a fence, leading to his arrest while others escaped. The suspect confessed to the crime, stating that his criminal gang has been in the business of “one chance” robbery and fraud on unsuspecting victims within the Enugu metropolis.”

The PPRO added that the same operatives, on April 17, 2024, around 4 p.m., arrested one Supuruchukwu Udeozor “m” aged 20, of Power-line near New Artisan, Enugu, and recovered a suspected stolen blue-coloured tricycle (keke) with number plate UWN 132 VK and feet No. EBS/TRO 1555.”
