A member of a robbery gang who specialize in attacking and snatching bags from their victims, was apprehended yesterday along Umezurike Hospital Road by Nworie River in Owerri, Imo State.
Nwadike Chikezie, who narrated the incident said their latest victim, a young lady was walking along the road unaware that she was being trailed by the hoodlums operating with a commercial Trycycle(Keke). They approached the lady, grabbed her handbag and fled. The victim raised alarm which attracted passersby including operatives of Imo Civil Guards.
“The criminals were given a hot chase. Their trick to distract those pursuing them by throwing away the handbag yielded no fruit as the charged pursuers sustained their pursuit. In the melee that ensued, plain cloth Police officers patrolling around joined them. Yours sincerely moved in too for the Media coverage.’
“Along the line, the criminals abandoned the Try-Cycle and ran to the Nworie River Bush. Immediately, the area was cordoned and with spirited efforts, one of them was caught.
The police presence stopped the masses from executing jungle Justice immediately.’
“Investigating, people around quickly testified that the caught criminal is a known face who specializes in snatching of bags,phones etc.
“They equally testified that sometimes, the criminal will pose as an ENTRACO official to unleash unimaginable wickedness on motorist. This has justified the efforts of the GM ENTRACO to guard against impersonation of the Corp. This he did by officially launching a uniform for their use. The criminal has since been taking to State CID for further investigations.”
