The Enugu State Police Command has arrested three suspects believed to be behind the rail tracks vandalism in the state.

The command’s spokesman, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said on Friday in Enugu that the suspected vandals were arrested on August 21 in Emene, on the outskirts of Enugu metropolis.

Amaraizu said items recovered from them included machetes, saws, a cutter, one digger, iron rods, one big spanner and long pincers.

The police spokesperson told the News Agency of Nigeria that the vandalised items as well as a vehicle used in conveying the items were also recovered.

He said that the suspects were arrested by police operatives from the Emene division who acted on a tip-off that some suspected hoodlums were vandalising a rail track at Emene bush.

“Following the information, police operatives got to the scene where one of the suspects, Monday Uche from Ebonyi State, was promptly nabbed after being overpowered.

“His arrest and revelation led to the arrest of Henry Uche of the Amauda Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State. He is a bus driver, whose bus with the number plate, XT 102 GGE, was allegedly used in conveying the stolen items.

“Also arrested in connection with the incident is one Ofor of number 47 Okorocha Lane, Ukwuoji within Emene,” Amaraizu said.

The police spokesman said a manhunt for other fleeing members of the gang had been intensified.

“The suspects are currently helping the police operatives in the investigation which has commenced,” he added.
