About 33 persons have been arrested by the Enugu State Police Command before and after Christmas in different parts of the state for armed robbery and other crimes.

It was gathered that the suspects were arrested for offences ranging from armed robbery and car snatching to unlawful possession of firearms and cultism.

Two of the suspects were arrested for unlawful possession of firearms, 14 for armed robbery, four for car snatching, eight for cultism and two for diversion of a truckload of beer.

A police source, who confided in our correspondent, said the suspects would be paraded on Tuesday by the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Abdulraham.

According to the source, one Onuwa Chibieze and Abba Celestine, a driver and his motor boy, respectively, were arrested for allegedly diverting a truckload of beer they were to deliver to a dealer in Benue State to Enugu Ezike in the Igboeze North Local Government Area of Enugu State.

The duo allegedly sold the beer to another dealer, who was said to have absconded and abandoned the truck along the road.

Meanwhile, a police inspector attached to office of the Police Public Relations Office, Kierian Igwe, confirmed that some persons had been arrested, but could not provide details.

He said he had no power to react to media enquiries and told our correspondent that the CP would soon brief journalists on the development.
