Imo State Police Command’s team of Special Anti-Robbery Squad has apprehended a retired police officer, for his alleged involvement in armed robbery.
Commissioner of Police, Mr. Adisa Bolanta, told newsmen in Owerri, the Imo State capital that the retired police officer was caught red handed when he broke into the home of his victim, armed with a loaded locally made double barrel gun.
“The retired police officer, who resides in Owerri, was arrested on December 29, 2012. His supposed victim disarmed him and quickly raised alarm that attracted his neighbours,” Bolanta said.
Also nabbed by the police are Kin Enyim from Ebonyi State, Dan Ogbonna and Ikechukwu Nzelobi for being in possession of illegal firearm.
“The trio were in a yellow tri-cycle when a thorough search was conducted on them following a credible tip off. A locally pistol and five rounds of live cartridges were found on them,” he said.
