POLICE BUST CAR SNATCHING SYNDICATE, ARREST SUSPECTS, RECOVER STOLEN VEHICLES, OTHER EXHIBITS IN ENUGU

Police Operatives of Enugu State Command, serving in the Uwani Police Division, have busted a car-stealing syndicate, arresting four (4) male suspects and recovering four (4) suspected stolen vehicles and numerous car keys from them.


The success follows the mounting of operational surveillance by the Operatives, upon receiving several reports of the cars stealing within the Kenyetta Market axis in Uwani, Enugu.


Accordingly, Anioko Chukwujekwu aged 32, the syndicate's kingpin, was arrested on March 3, 2024, at about noon while attempting to steal a car from where it was parked at the market. Numerous cars' keys were recovered from him.


During the preliminary investigation, the suspect confessed to the crime, while his confessional statements led to the further arrest of three (3) more suspects in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, who are his conspirators, receivers, and sellers of the stolen vehicles. They include Ugochukwu Okoh aged 41 and Nkemdi Idah aged 65, arrested on March 7, 2024, and Nwoke Sunday aged 57, arrested on March 9, 2024. A total of four different models of Mercedes-Benz cars, comprising two 190 E (respectively ash-coloured with Reg. No. SKA 292 AA and red-coloured without Reg. No.), one blue-coloured C-Class with Reg. No. AGL 512 EY, and black-coloured 230 E (V-Boot) with Reg. No. CHR 50 AE, were recovered from them.


The suspects will be arraigned in court and prosecuted once investigations are concluded.
