25 August 2016, 08:32

Enugu - Two suspected armed bandits were on Wednesday arrested while one was killed during a gun duel with operatives of the Enugu State Police Command, police spokesperson, Ebere Amaraizu, has said.

A statement from Amaraizu in Enugu said that the hoodlums had allegedly operated on Edinburgh Road, Ogui New Layout and Rangers Avenue, Independence Layout.

He said that the two hoodlums were arrested during a manhunt mounted by the police, adding that several arms were recovered.

“The Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Mr Emmanuel Ojukwu, has applauded his operatives on their effort leading to the arrest of two of the hoodlums and another dead making it three.

“The hoodlums had operated around Edinburgh/Ogui New Layout axis which led to the death of one person.

“The operatives confronted them head-on, ensuring that the hoodlums did not have a free day. A man-hunt for other members of the gang is still on,” Amaraizu said.

Sporadic gun shots were later heard around Independence Avenue close to the Government House.

The area was cordoned off by the police as people ran away in different directions.
