Operatives of the Anambra State Police Command have arrested three suspected cultists and recovered one English beretta pistol, one locally fabricated gun and one live ammunition from them.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Tochukwu Ikenga, who disclosed this said other items recovered from them include, a motorcycle, N22400 cash and substances suspected to be hard drugs.

Ikenga said; “The police operatives working on a credible information, stormed a criminal hideout in Awada, Idemili North local government area and arrested one Onyedika Okwuibe, aged 25years.

“Immediate search conducted in his house led to the recovery of the English pistol and one live ammunition.

“Further interrogation of Onyedika led to the arrest of one Chimaobi Ezeoke whom he alleged gave him the gun. They both confessed to be members of Vikings cult group”.

He added that police operatives working with the vigilante group at Ufuma, Orumba North local government area, also arrested 31 year old Samuel Nwankwo and recovered one locally fabricated gun, one motorcycle, substances suspected to be hard drugs and N22,400 cash.

According to the PPRO, Nwankwo and one other gang member still at large operating with unregistered motorcycle, had attacked Heca Filling Station along Umunze/Ekwulobia road and dispossessed the sales girl of proceeds of cash sales.

Ikenga said that the suspects were intercepted by Vigilante men working with the police, adding that the suspect had been interrogated, while there are ongoing efforts to nab other members of the syndicate.
