    THE Anambra State police command has arrested 13 persons
    suspected to be involved in the disturbances by some hoodlums in Onitsha,
    which claimed the lives of a policeman, a pregnant woman and her two
    children in the commercial town on Thursday.

    Vanguard gathered that over 100 youths went on rampage following the
    death of the pregnant woman and her two children when a lorry driver lost
    control as he tried to escape when flagged down by policemen at a check
    point.


    A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, in Anambra State,
    Mrs. Nkiru Nwode said the identities of the late pregnant woman and her
    children were yet to be ascertained.

    The statement by Nwode yesterday said: “Anambra State police command
    received a distress call that misguided elements numbering over 100 went
    on rampage and attacked a police check point at Km 4/6 along Onitsha-
    Owerri road manned by visiting police mobile unit attached to 3 PMF
    Enugu.

    “In the process, they killed on the spot, one SGT. Uchenna Ezike who was
    on duty. They took away his Ak-47 riffle, set ablaze four vehicles and
    destroyed part of Bontus Group, which is a company located in the area.

    “Following the distress call, police patrol teams led by the Divisional Police
    Officer, DPO, in charge of Okpoko, rushed to the scene, restored normalcy
    and arrested the13 suspects, including one Paul Igwe in whose custody the
    deceased police riffle was recovered.”
    According to Nwode, the bodies of the four persons who lost their lives
    during the fracas had been deposited in the mortuary for post mortem
    examination.

    She said that the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Garba Umar, had
    ordered for full scale investigation to ascertain the actual cause of the
    incident with a view to fishing out the perpetrators of the dastardly act.
    The command also warned that police would not take it lightly with any
    person or group that tried to take laws into their hands in the state.
