No fewer than five suspects are currently in the Enugu State Police Command’s net for allegedly stealing and buying stolen musical and communication instruments of Holy Ghost Cathedral Church, Enugu.

The command’s spokesman, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement on Friday in Enugu that the five suspects were nabbed on June 5.

Amaraizu noted that the arrest of the five suspects followed intelligence information passed by a commercial bus driver to police operatives in Anambra and Enugu on the activities of the suspects

The spokesman stated that the operatives of the Central Police Station, Enugu have already  recovered all the 15 stolen speakers and communications equipment of the Cathedral Church.

According to him, the principal suspect, one Chukwuebuka Onwe (22), was a security guard working in the Church before a generating set allegedly stolen from the Church was traced to him and his cohorts. 

Amaraizu noted that Onwe, however, absconded from duty after the incident.

The spokesman noted that when the police stepped in to investigate  the matter; the suspect could not be seen but his accomplices were diligently prosecuted and had been cooling their heels in prison custody.

“But in what may appear as unrepentant act on the side of Onwe, he later initiated another line of criminal act in which he come into the Church in the early hours on several occasion and  allegedly carted away 15 speakers  and other cathedral communication implements.

“It was however gathered that his evil deed and that of his cohorts came to the end as he was promptly arrested around Nkpor axis of Anambra by police operatives of both Anambra and Enugu States who had shared information about him.

“On that fateful day at about 4.15 a.m., the suspect broke into the Church after allegedly stealing the remaining sets of musical instruments; he contracted a bus driver to take him to Nkpor to sell the items but the driver was so observant to have noticed Holy Ghost Cathedral Church inscriptions on the speakers.

“It was further gathered that on that note, the driver promptly contacted police operatives who arrested the suspect and alerted the operatives of the Central Police Station, Enugu who had been on investigations of the dastard acts of Onwe,’’ he said.

According to Amaraizu, the arrest of the major suspect led to the arrest of four others who are buyers of these equipment but based in Nkpor and Onitsha in Anambra State respectively.

 

“All the stolen speakers and communication equipment of the Cathedral Church have been recovered by police operatives who are investigating the matter,’’ he added
