The police command in Anambra says its operatives have arrested members of a suspected gun-running syndicate in the state. 

Toochukwu Ikenga, the police spokesperson, said three of the suspects were arrested in the Onitsha area of the state.

Ikenga said 23 automatic pump action guns and 625 live cartridges were recovered from the suspects.

“Three suspected members of the syndicate were arrested in Onitsha while investigation is being expanded,’’ Ikenga said.

He added that the breakthrough followed weeks of intensive police surveillance of the syndicate.

Last Saturday, Joe Ezenwebo, ward chairman of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in Nanka LGA of the state was shot dead.

Ezenwebo was killed after a stakeholders’ meeting with Chinwe Nnabuife, YPP member representing Orumba north and Orumba south federal constituency of Anambra.
