Anambra: Puff-Adder Operatives Bust Kidnappers

Following actionable intelligence, Puff-Adder operatives in conjunction with the Anambra Police Command’s Special Anti robbery Squad (SARS) tracked and arrested at Aro Ngwa, Owerrinta in Abia State, one Anthony Robbert (25) Udoka Nwoko (27) after a fierce gun battle. 

The suspects who were severely wounded during the encounter had on the 3 November, 2019 kidnapped one Amaechi Ike at Awada, Onitsha, Anambra State, collected three million naira ransom from his family and still went ahead to kill the victim.

The suspects voluntarily confessed to the crime and immediately took Police detectives to the location where they buried the victim in a shallow grave. The corpse was exhumed and recovered as exhibit. 

Consequently, one locally made revolver pistol and four life ammunition of .9mm were equally recovered from the suspects.

Meanwhile, the suspects were taken to the hospital for medical attention as the case is under investigation after which perpetrators would be brought to justice. 

The Commissioner of Police, CP John B. Abang, has assured “Ndi Anambra” and the general public that the Command under his watch will continue to hunt all the criminals in the State until they relocate from Anambra State or refrain from perpetrating crimes.

The CP further enjoins the public not to relent in providing useful information that would assist the Police towards protecting lives and property of all the citizenry in the State. -Dedeigbo Ayodeji
