The command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Maureen Chinaka, briefed the press on behalf of the commissioner, saying the command created and implemented excellent administrative and operational initiatives with impressive outcomes.
ASP Chinaka said the command reduced armed robbery, abduction, and government property vandalism by arresting several suspects and recovering evidence.
Among the exhibits are firearms with varying specifications, ten cars, eight tricycles, train shoes, and materials that could be illegal drugs.
Kidnapped victims and trafficked children were rescued with stolen automobiles and tricycles recovered throughout the review period, according to the police PRO.
She added that 12 of many instances presented to various courts were successfully prosecuted and convicted.
The crimes included rape, defilement, theft, malicious destruction, assault, threat of violence, burglary, and murder.
ASP Chinaka listed the tricycles’ registration numbers as UMA 27VQ,
UML 710QJ, RLU 713QH, BLF 254QG, and HAF 152QG. One tricycle lacked a number plate.
Two recovered automobiles were LSR 906FJ and CYS 7898.
Several criminal suspects were paraded at the Abia State Police Headquarters. Different-sized firearms and tricycles recovered from them were presented.
One defendant, Udeh from Enugu State, told journalists he was caught while transporting aluminium components he ‘bought somewhere.’
After the parade, Abia State Commissioner of Police Kenechukwu Onwuemelie told journalists in his office that the command is doing everything possible to safeguard the state. He said his police are working with the Abia State administration and other security agencies to protect Abia inhabitants.
Onwuemelie assured residents and tourists of appropriate protection throughout the holidays and urged everyone to follow the law.
