Enugu - The Enugu State Police Command on Monday said that it arrested two armed robbery suspects that have tormented residents of Achara Layout within Enugu metropolis.

The command’s spokesman, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu that the suspects had been disturbing the layout for over two months.

Amaraizu noted that the suspects were nabbed through police operative response to a distress call.

“The criminals and their cohorts now at large were operating at a shop on gun point at Awkunanaw Street in Achara Layout on Thursday at about 4p.m. where suspects have allegedly robbed a sales girl of an undisclosed amount of money and valuables.

“It was gathered that on arrival, suspects allegedly engaged police in a gun duel and the ensuing gun battle resulted in the arrest of Obumneme Nwafor, who already had been touched by bullet.
