The policeman and two others – Ebuka Nwosu and Anayo Zeigbo who were arrested between October 31 and November 2 in Enugu and Bayelsa states, respectively,  were tracked down by the F-SARS operatives for robbing the driver of a serving Chief Magistrate, Chika Ezerioha, in Imo State.

Imo State Commissioner of Police, Dasuki Galadanchi, who confirmed their arrest said;

“At Uwani in Enugu State, and  Yenagoa in Bayelsa State, from October 31 till November 2, F-SARS operatives, coordinated by its Commander, Godfrey Victor, arrested one serving policeman, Omego Chibuike, 24.

“He was serving at the Ogui Police Station in Enugu State before his arrest. The other suspects are Nwosu Ebuka, 25, of Uwani Police Barrack in Enugu State, and Anayo Zeigbo from Enugu State, but resident in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

“They were arrested in connection with a case of armed robbery. It is important to note that on October 6, 2016, at Egbeada by Nkoromi filling station near the flyover in Imo State, one Robert Ekeh, a driver to Chief Magistrate Chika Ezerioha, was robbed at gunpoint and his Toyota Avenza car, golden colour, with registration number: IMSJ 148, was taken away.

“The suspects have confessed to their involvement in the crime. Upon recovery and in order to evade arrest, the car registration number was changed to MUS 986 FK. Effort is on to arrest one Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps operative, who is one of the main suspects.”

The police boss concluded his statement by saying that  the investigation which spanned over two years before the arrest of the suspects, was an indication that the community policing strategies of the Inspector General of Police being implemented by his command were effective.

“If we can arrest one of our own in connection with a crime, that means that nobody is above the law. We are committed to crime fighting and making sure that the Yuletide season is crime-free in Imo State,” the CP told Punch’s correspondent.

  1. Wow this are the things that even the FG are supposed to be doing. Whoever is involved in a crime and no matter his position he is suppose to be arrested.

  2. Shame on you all the black uniform users. Just disgracing your uniform, u don’t let people know the good ones apart from the bad ones.

  3. lol…and we think many of the cases of car snatching arent done by the so called security operatives? this nation needs total cleansing…we need to start from default

  4. When those that enforces the law, are the ones breaking it, what will be the fate of the citizens under their care. These are the bad egg that keeps soiling the pastry.

  5. I don’t know if people know the meaning of this Nigeria force agency b4 entering, how can someone who has vow to protect his people engaging with bad people to destroy dsam people he vow to protect.
