The Police Command in Enugu says it has arrested notorious car snatchers on Nsukka Road near Enugu.
A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Ebere Amaraizu, in Enugu on Thursday said the suspects were arrested through intelligence information gathered by the operatives.
Amaraizu said that through a well-coordinated operation carried out on Aug. 7, the Udenu Division of the force nabbed the suspects.
He said that the suspects snatched a Lexus Jeep with registration number 954 BH from the owner in Aba, Abia, and were escaping through Nsukka axis near Enugu where they were nabbed.
According to him, the suspects are now regretting their actions because they (suspects) lamented that they never knew that police operatives would nabb them since they were almost escaping.
He said that the three suspects were helping the operatives in their investigations and would be formally handed over to the Abia Command for further investigation. (NAN)
