Operatives of the Anti-kidnapping Unit of the Imo State Police Command have arrested three persons for alleged robbery and r*pe.

The state Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, who paraded them in Owerri, the state capital, said a gun, cartridge and phones, were recovered from the suspected hoodlums.

Names of the suspects were given as,
21-year-old Marcel Iwuchukwu, Agim Ugochukwu, 22, and Ifeanyi Chukwu, 23.

CP Galadanchi said, “On August 8, the operatives of the Command Anti-kidnapping Unit responded to a distress call at Laurel Suit Hostel behind Imo State University. The suspects specialised in armed robbery and r*pe of innocent victims within the area.

“The victim is Odinaka Chukwuemeka, 22.
One locally-made shotgun, one live cartridge and six phones, were recovered from the suspects as exhibits.”

The suspects had made useful statements to the police.

While promising to prosecute the men, the CP said the Inspector-General of Police community policing strategies, which his command was implementing, were yielding results in the state.
