Police Operatives in collaboration with the Anambra Command Special Anti-Cult Unit and Vigilante group arrested 29 suspects during a series of raids on different criminal hideouts and other black spots in Oba town, Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra State.
According to the Police Spokesperson, SP Haruna Mohammed, the raids were part of the Command’s commitment towards stemming the tide of crime in the State, especially during these ember months.
The raid led to the recovery of one pump-action rifle, two sachets suspected to be Indian hemp, one UTC axe, one military boot, 26 cartridges, one military helmet, 13 cutlasses, two hammers, 13 assorted phones, and a cash sum of N45,000 from the suspects.
He added that the suspects would be screened, profiled, and charged to court if found wanting, while those found innocent will be released unconditionally.
