Enugu Police Bursts Tricycle Stealing Syndicate, Arrest Two

The Enugu State Police Command has busted a tricycle-stealing syndicate operating in states in the South East.

A statement by the command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, in Enugu on Monday, said that they had arrested two suspected members of the syndicate.

Ndukwe said that the feat was achieved by the command’s detectives, serving in Central Police Station Enugu, with support from Neighbourhood Watch Group members.

“Michael Okorie, 18, and Christian Okorie, 19, both male and of Onicha Local Government Area in Ebonyi State, were on April 5, 2024, at about 11 am, arrested by

detectives.

“They were arrested at Mbanugo Street within the Coal Camp axis of Enugu metropolis, and a stolen yellow-coloured TVC tricycle recovered from them.

“Upon interrogation, the suspects confessed to having been committing the criminal act of stealing in Ebonyi and Enugu states.

“They further confessed to having stolen the recovered tricycle from where it was parked on April 4, 2024, during a wake, and were in the process of selling it before they were apprehended,” he said.

According to him, the suspects will be arraigned and prosecuted once investigations are concluded.
