A woman and three other male suspects have been arrested by men of the Nigeria Police Force, Anambra command.
A police statement said the suspects are among the “unknown gunmen” terrorising the South-East region.
It was gathered that the suspects were arrested by operatives of the Neni Police Division in Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The operatives engaged the suspects, where one of the gunmen was killed and four others were arrested, including the woman.
The suspects were arrested with different guns, police shoes, a belt and a beret, Biafran flag and charms.
They reportedly engaged the police operatives who intercepted them while they were on a kidnapping operation.
In a video, one of the police officers who did not mention his name said that there was no casualty from the side of the police but that one of the gunmen was gunned down during the shootout.
The police officer said:
“These are the unknown gunmen we encountered. They kidnapped someone yesterday and we went after them and in the course of exchanging fire, we were able to gun down this guy by name, Sam Olowo.
