Two suspected criminals were Saturday killed when police operatives serving in Anti-Cultism Tactical Squad of the Enugu State Police Command raided a criminal hideout at Akwuke community of Enugu South Local Government Area.

The operatives also recovered one AK-47 rifle, one submachine gun (SMG), one stainless pump-action gun (PAG), twenty live and twenty-three expended rounds of 7.62mm caliber ammunition during the raid. It was gathered that many suspects fled during the operation.

The state police PRO, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, said, “Also recovered are five live cartridges, and a small blue-colored Gideon New Testament Bible used to conceal objects suspected to be charm.”

He said a preliminary investigation showed that the breech number of the recovered AK-47 was wiped off.

The suspects were responsible for the attacks and carting away of police officers’ rifles, Ndukwe said, adding that the rifle’s magazine bore the Nigeria Police Force colour.

The state comissioner of police, CP Kanayo Uzuegbu, has reaffirmed the command’s commitment to rid Enugu State of unrepentant criminals.

He, however, solicited the continued support of the citizenry, while urging them and owners of medical facilities, in particular, to report persons found with gunshot wounds to the police.
