The Enugu State Police Command has arrested three policemen, who were said to have lost their AK-47 rifles to gunmen in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of the state.

It was learnt that the policemen were attached to expatriates working at Ada Rice in the Adani community when gunmen invaded the farm and disarmed them. The gunmen took away their rifles with fully loaded magazines.

The source said the command arrested the cops last Wednesday for explanation on their roles in the incident.

“The policemen are currently undergoing an orderly room trial,” said the source.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Aliyu, confirmed the incident and the arrest of the affected policemen.

Some unknown gunmen had on April 21, 2021 attacked the Adani Divisional Police Station and killed two cops.

CP Aliyu said “the command has deployed all its security gadgets to track the hoodlums and recover the weapons.” -Punch
