The Police Command in Enugu State has recovered one locally-fabricated double-barrel gun with two cartridges from escaping armed robbery suspects at New Artisan Bridge, off Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway.
This is contained in a statement issued by the Command’s Spokesman, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, on Sunday in Enugu.
Ndukwe said that the feat was achieved by police operatives serving at the New Haven Division of the Command on June 16 at about 10:46am.
“The hoodlums abandoned their firearm with the ammunition on sighting police operatives, who immediately went on their trail, following the receipt of credible information that the miscreants were sighted in the location perfecting their criminal plans.
“Meanwhile, discreet investigative and moves to fish out the fleeing criminal elements are underway.
“Further development on the matter shall be made public,” he said.
