The Commissioner of Police, Mr Abutu Yaro, made this known on Friday in a statement signed on his behalf by the command’s spokesman, CSP Micheal Abattam.
He said the gang was responsible for the recent robbery incidents recorded in Mbaise in Imo.
Yaro said two automatic English-made pump-action and life ammunition were recovered from the suspects.
“On 14/7/2021 at about 1730 hours based on credible information, a gang of armed robbers that have been terrorising Mbaise and its environs were sighted at Umuevu Onitsha Ezinihitte Mbaise LGA in Imo State.
“The command tactical teams mobilised and raided the criminal hideout where the suspects were arrested.
“Recovered from them are two English-made automatic pump action guns with seven rounds of live cartridges and two locally made pistols.
“The suspects are presently undergoing interrogation and have made useful statements that will aid the police to arrest other suspects.
“CP Abutu Yaro commended the officers and men for being proactive and also commended the residents of the state for their commendable synergy with the police,” the statement said.
