The officers of the Enugu State Police Command have arrested a Deputy Superintendent of Prisons in the Nigerian Prisons Service, Mr. Collins Ugwu, on suspicion of armed robbery.
The accused, a native of Ezza in Ebonyi State, who resides in Abuja where he works at the headquarters of the Nigeria Prisons Service, was reportedly caught in Enugu on June 26.
He was arrested alongside alleged accomplices — Ifeanyi Ozor, a native of Enugu State who is also residing in Abuja; and Smart Osetu, from Oguta in Imo State.
The Commissioner of Police, Enugu State, Mr. Mohammed Danmallam, who disclosed this while parading the suspects, said the suspects are members of a syndicate, which specializes in monitoring bank customers.
Danmallam alleged, “The suspects (Ugwu, Ozor and Osetu) belonged to a syndicate that specialised in monitoring anyone that had gone to the bank to make withdrawals and trailed them to a point where they could smartly force the door or the windscreen (of the victims’ cars) open with their instrument and steal the said amount.
“They were also a part of a syndicate that bought goods from traders and generated fake payment alert to the owners of the goods without him knowing.
“They were nabbed along Ogui Road, Enugu, by the operatives of the Enugu State Police Command on June 26, 2018, following intelligence information gathered concerning their nefarious activities.”
Items allegedly recovered from the suspects, according to Danmallam, included a Golf car with registration number Abuja RBC 220 KF, and a broken plug which they allegedly used in ‘scratching down’ windows of cars when they wanted to steal from their victims.
