The Police Command in Enugu State says it has begun manhunt for hoodlums that attacked Abakpa-Nike community, a suburb of Enugu metropolis on Monday morning.
The Command’s spokesperson, Daniel Ndukwe, DSP, who disclosed this in a release said detectives and tactical operatives are on the trail of the hoodlums, suspected to be armed robbers.
The command, however, said normalcy and regular human activities resumed in the areas after the attack.
Ndukwe noted that there was no casualty or loss of life recorded during the incidents by the same armed gang.
“Normalcy has since been restored at Liberty Bus Stop, T-Junction and Harmony Road locations of Abakpa-Nike, Enugu, where yet-to-be apprehended armed miscreants attacked and set ablaze motor vehicles and tricycles of some road users, at about 4:30 a.m.
Meanwhile, one white-coloured Toyota Sienna mini-van and a black-coloured Lexus RX300 Jeep, used by the armed arsonists to perpetrate the heinous act, have been recovered.
“Therefore, members of the public are enjoined to provide the Police with credible information and intelligence that will help fast-track the ongoing operations to fish out and bring the fleeing assailants to book,” he said.
