AWKA – Anambra State Anti robbery Squad, SARS, yesterday,
gunned down three suspected kidnappers and arrested six others
during a gun battle that lasted over an hour.


The state police command, at a briefing in Awka, said two of the
victims of the kidnappers, Rev. Fr. C. Okoye of Archdiocese of
Onitsha and one Onyekwelu Jonathan Eledu, were rescued by the
police.


According to the police, the suspects killed were members of the
dreaded gang that had been terrorizing the state which had the
late Olisa Ifedika, alias Ofeakwu, as their kingpin. Ifejika’s house at
Oraifite in Ekwusigo local government area had since been
destroyed.


The police said they were able to dismantle the suspects’
detention camp at Orsumoghu in Ihiala local government area.
The hoodlums were said to have demanded a ransom from the
family of the Reverend Father before luck ran out on them.
The police also said it had arrested 14 armed robbery suspects in
the state since October 1, 2012, while two other robbery suspects
were killed in a gun battle.


Items recovered from them include two- AK 47 riffles, one rocket
launcher, one rocket, four rocket propellers, 18 AK 47, magazines
and 300 rounds of 7.62mm live ammunition.


According to the State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Raphael
Uzoigwe, the operatives are working assiduously to track down
fleeing wounded members of the syndicate, while SARS was
investigating the armed robbery suspects.
