The Anambra police command says it has recovered two AK-47 rifles stolen by gunmen from three formations two years ago.

In a statement on Monday, Tochukwu Ikenga, public relations officer of the command, said one of the recovered rifles was stolen in 2021 during an attack by gunmen at Zone 13 headquarters, Ukpo.

Ikenga added that the second rifle was stolen from the area command headquarters in Ogidi early last year when the formation was attacked by some assailants.

“Anambra State Police Command has recovered two AK-47 Rifles stolen from two Police formations years back,” the statement reads.


“One of the rifles was stolen when zone 13 headquarters, Ukpo was attacked by unknown gunmen in 2021.

“The second rifle was stolen from area command headquarters, Ogidi early last year when the formation was attacked by insurgents.

“Painstaking intelligence gathering by undercover operatives led to uncovering of a location where the arms were hidden in Nnobi, Idemili South LGA of the State.


“The Commissioner of police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, who commended the operatives for their diligence urged them not to relent until perpetrators of the attacks which claimed police lives are brought to justice.

“He assured the team that every logistic support they require would be provided until the objectives are achieved.”
