The Police Command in Enugu State said it had arrested a notorious armed robbery suspect, name withheld, terrorising residents of Holy Ghost and Rail-line axis of Enugu metropolis.

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said this in a statement in Enugu on Friday that the suspect was arrested on June 13 by police operatives of the Central Police Station, Enugu.

He said the police also recovered phones, bag containing some amount of money and a black plastic pistol the suspect used to inflict fear on unsuspecting victims.
