Anambra Police Operatives Foil Illegal Sit-at-Home Enforcer, Recover Weapons


May 30, 2024

In a decisive operation, Anambra State Police Command thwarted an attempt by armed men to enforce an illegal sit-at-home directive. The operation took place at 2 PM today along the Oba flyover in Idemili South. Acting on intelligence, police operatives intercepted a gang of four armed men operating on motorbikes.

During the encounter, the police successfully demobilized one of the miscreants, while the other three fled the scene with bullet injuries. The operatives recovered a locally made Barreta pistol, four expanded cartridges, two phones, and various incriminating items suggesting unpatriotic activities and disloyalty to the Nigerian government.

Preliminary investigations reveal that the armed men were regrouping to enforce an illegal sit-at-home order scheduled for May 30, 2024. Efforts are currently underway to apprehend the three escaped suspects, as operatives continue their manhunt.

Commissioner of Police, Echeng Echeng, commended the operatives for their swift action and urged them to maintain the momentum in their crackdown on criminal elements. He emphasized the importance of denying these criminals any space to operate and commit further crimes in the state.

SP Tochukwu Ikenga, Police Public Relations Officer of the Anambra State Command, confirmed the incident and assured the public of the police’s commitment to maintaining law and order.
