The Commissioner of Police, Anambra Command, CP Echeng Echeng has called on Ndi-Anambra to refrain from engaging in jungle justice.
The CP made this call today Tuesday 8/3/2022 following an attempt by an angry mob to set three (3) alleged armed robbery suspects on fire.
The timely arrival and intervention of some police operatives at the scene saved the suspects from being lynched.
The suspects: Ifeanyi Nsiegbunam ‘M’ 23years, Chinemelum Nwafor ‘M’ 27years, Nnamdi Nwakwesili ‘M’ 40yrs, were alleged to have on 05/03/2022 at about 10am, dispossessed a student of Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam of her belongings.
Incriminating items found and recovered from the suspects include: 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, however, enjoins them to always follow the due process by handing over arrested suspects to the Police. He notes 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.
