Three car snatchers arrested in Enugu

04 September 2013, 16:08

Enugu - The police in Enugu State have arrested three suspects who allegedly snatched a Toyota Camry car marked LSR 837 BM at the New Haven area  of the state.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement in Enugu on Wednesday that the car was snatched at gun point while the suspects were arrested at Nza Street in the metropolis.

He said the suspects were arrested following a distress call made by the victim, John Ejero, on Sunday.

"Meanwhile, investigations are in top gear as the victim has identified the arrested suspects as the people that robbed him,” Amaraizu said.

The victim, according to the statement, thanked the police for their intervention and urged residents to always give the police information.

It also said that Ejero advised people to always give timely and useful information to the  police  while making judicious use of the distress call numbers made available by the command.

The statement further quoted the Police Commissioner, Adamu Mohammed, as  assuring residents of the state of adequate security.

Mohammed, it added, appealed to the people to cooperate with the police by offering  timely and useful information.
