The Enugu police command says it has arrested a suspected cattle herder with one AK-47 rifle and 7.62 ammunition at Isigwe Ugbawka community in Nkanu East local government area of the state.

Ebere Amaraizu, the command’s spokesman, said in a statement on Saturday that the suspect was arrested on April 4 at a farmland in the area.

“The suspected herder is now helping the police operatives in their full scale investigations,” he said.

He said Mohammed Danmallam, the commissioner of police, had visited the community where he commended residents for their timely and useful information which led to the arrest and arms recovery.

Amaraizu said the police boss used the occasion to further release all the state command’s distress/emergency numbers to further strengthen police-public partnership.

Responding, Ikechukwu Ubagu, chairman, Nkanu East local government area, said: “There is no tension in the area as farmers are still in their various farmlands.

“The council is assuring the commissioner of its continual partnership with the police.”
