Spokesperson of the Police in the state, Haruna Mohammed confirmed the incident, saying detectives attached to the 33 Division apprehended the suspects.
Mohammed said, “Police detectives attached to the 33 Division, Onitsha, arrested one Ogbang Clement, 34, and Udeh Orji, 21. They are private security personnel attached to the Independent Layout Estate, Nkwelle Ezunaka.
“The suspects conspired and robbed one Ogbonna Usulor of Nkwelle Ezunaka of his phone and other personal belongings. Exhibits recovered from them are a locally-made pistol loaded with life ammunition and the stolen items.”
