The Enugu State Police Command on the early hours of Saturday smashed a highway robbery gang that specializes in disguising in Army uniforms to terrorize motorists at the Nsukka axis of the Enugu-Makurdi road.

The police said they recovered two double barrel guns fabricated as AK 47 rifle, money, a pair of boots and torches, among others.The State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, told reporters in Enugu that the hoodlums were dressed in military camouflage.

“The Police Counter Terrorism Unit Axis received a distress call on Thursday that hoodlums had blocked the road by Inyi in Igboeze North and wreaking havoc on their victims.

“The unit swung into action promptly which resulted in exchange of fire.

“One of the hoodlums was fatally injured and later confirmed dead by a doctor.

He said, “Another hoodlum identified as Godwin Okpe from Ogbadigbo in Benue dressed in camouflage is also fatally injured and being revived to aid operatives in their investigation while others escaped with bullet wounds.”

He appealed to members of the public particularly hospital operators to watch out for any one with suspected bullet injury and report promptly to any nearby police station.

Commissioner of Police in Enugu state, Mr Emmanuel Ojukwu, applauded the effort of the policemen.

Ojukwu said that the command would continue to maintain functional security for members of the public as well as motorists in the state.
