Imo State Police Arrest Armed Robbery Syndicate

The Imo State Police Command has made a significant breakthrough in the fight against armed robbery, as they arrested two suspects involved in an attack on a gold shop. The incident, which resulted in a fierce gun battle with law enforcement, left one suspect dead.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Barde, announced the arrests during a parade of suspected criminals in Owerri, the state capital. According to the police, the jewelry stolen from the shop is estimated to be worth about N500 million.

The police recovered several weapons and ammunition from the suspects, including two pump action guns, four locally made pistols, eight live cartridges, and one expanded cartridge.

Robbery Plot Uncovered

The police received a distress call around 1 pm on Saturday reporting a robbery in progress at a jewelry shop in Ikenegbu, Imo State. The criminals, armed with sophisticated weapons and using a white Hilux with a covered license plate, were attempting to carry out their heinous act.

The Commissioner of Police swiftly mobilized the command’s tactical team, leading them to the scene of the crime. Upon arrival, the police officers were met with gunfire from the armed robbers. However, they showed exceptional skill and were able to overpower the criminals, resulting in the death of one suspect and the arrest of two others. The remaining perpetrators managed to escape, though they sustained gunshot injuries.

Seized Stolen Goods and Apprehended Suspects

During a search of the suspects and the crime scene, the police recovered numerous items. These included the two pump action guns, four locally made pistols, eight live cartridges, and one expanded cartridge used by the criminals. Additionally, they found the white Hilux with its license plate exposed, various items of jewelry valued in the millions of naira, two military under polo shirts, and two special forces t-shirts. Bags containing other stolen goods were also found.

No innocent bystanders or customers at the shop were harmed thanks to the swift response of the police. The authorities are now intensifying their efforts to apprehend the remaining suspects and those responsible for manufacturing the locally made pistols.

The arrested suspects will undergo a thorough investigation by the Command’s Tactical Team before being arraigned in court. The deceased suspect’s body will be taken to the morgue.

Acknowledgment and Call to Action

The Commissioner of Police commended the officers involved in the operation for their bravery and urged them to maintain their dedication to the fight against crime in the state. He also expressed his gratitude to the people of Imo State for their ongoing support and cooperation with the police.

Furthermore, the Commissioner encouraged residents, especially owners of hospitals and first aid outlets, to promptly report any individuals with gunshot injuries to the nearest police station or contact the Command’s emergency line.
