The second suspect and the victim were however rescued by the Police.

According to a statement released by the Command’s spokesperson, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, the victim is receiving medical attention.

The statement read;

In the early hours of today 3/5/2023, police operatives attached to Ogbunike division responding to a distress call along St Monica College Ogbunike road, arrested one Mr Jamui Emiron ‘m’ aged 22 years and recovered one already damaged yellow Mitsubishi L300 bus with Anambra reg nos: UKP 729 A.

The suspect is among a gang of armed robbers that attacked and robbed Occupants of a residential house in Ezi-Ogidi, abducted a female victim and was en route to their den before police were alerted.

The members of the neighbourhood had already supported the police by blocking the exit points within the area, intercepting the vehicle and apprehending two of the gang members while others escape.

Unfortunately, upon the arrival of the police operatives, one of the suspects has already been set ablaze by the angry mob and the criminal operational vehicle was badly damaged. The Operatives rescued the victim, the second suspect and recover the vehicle.

The Command while reiterating the campaign against mob action by some members of the public who resort to jungle justice whenever they arrest suspects in respect of any crime, commended the efforts and courage of community members in the apprehension of suspects but encourage them to take such suspect to the nearest Police Station whenever they are apprehended.

This would afford the Police the opportunity to conduct an appropriate investigation into the nefarious activities of the suspects and bring them to justice following extant laws.

The rescued victim has been taken to the hospital and is currently receiving medical treatment while the second suspect is in custody and is helping the Police with useful information in the ongoing operation to arrest other fleeing gang members.
