Men of the Anambra State Police Command have foiled a robbery on Ebenebe-Achalla Road in Awka North LGA.

Confirming the incident, the command’s spokesman, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, said the police got information from a public spirited citizen who saw two gunmen being conveyed on a motorcycle on the road.

Tochukwu said, “Operatives went in pursuit of the gang and encountered them where they had positioned themselves to rob motorists. On sighting the operatives, they engaged them in a shootout, but the battle-ready operatives overwhelmed them; forcing them to abandon their weapons and flee into the bushy environment.”

He further said that after the encounter, the operatives combed the bush and recovered two AK-47 rifles loaded with several rounds of 7.62mm ammunition and shells of expended rounds.
