The Deputy Superintendent of Prisons who works at the headquarters of the Nigeria Prisons Service, was arrested in Enugu on June 26 alongside suspected accomplices, Ifeanyi Ozor, a native of Enugu State who is also resident in Abuja; and Smart Osetu from Oguta in Imo State.

Parading the suspects, Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Danmallam, who spoke to newsmen disclosed that  Ugwu and his colleagues were apprehended after the police gathered intelligence information on their activities. According to him, the suspects were arrested on charges bordering on armed robbery, conspiracy, malicious damage, stealing and ‘obtaining by tricks.’

The Police Boss added that Senior Prison official from Ezza in Ebonyi State, who resides in Abuja stays around the premises of commercial banks to monitor prospective victims who had come to withdraw money, alongside members of his gang.

 

“The suspects (Ugwu, Ozor and Osetu) belong to a syndicate that specialises in monitoring anyone that has gone to bank to make withdrawals and trail them to a point where they can smartly force the door or the windscreen (of the victims’ car) open with their instrument and steal the said amount.

“They are also part of a syndicate that buys goods from traders and generate fake payment alert to the owner of the goods without him knowing.

“They were nabbed along Ogui Road, Enugu by the operatives of the Enugu State Police Command on June 26, 2018, following intelligence information gathered concerning their nefarious activities” Danmallam said.
