The commissioner stated that an intervention by the police saved the trio from angry mob who were already beating and pounding on them with intention to set them ablaze, after they (the suspects) dispossessed a student of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam, of her belongings. After the police took custody of the criminals, some incriminating items found and recovered from them and they are:
one locally made single barrel pistol,
a white coloured dagger,
a big saw, a big hammer,
a black and brown coloured lady’s bag,
an Infinix phone,
a black Panasonic phone and three(3) phone chargers.
The CP who was full of thanks to the public for the arrest of the three suspects and for their continuous assistance to the Police in the fight against crimes in the State, motivated them to always follow due process by handing over arrested suspects to the Police, instead of resorting to jungle justice
He noted that this would afford the Police opportunity to conduct appropriate investigation and prosecution of suspects and ensure justice. Meanwhile, the CP assures that the three rescued suspects will be charged to court as soon as investigation is completed.
