A statement from the Police Public Relations Officer DSP Tochukwu Ikenga has it that one of the rifles was stolen when Zone 13 Headquarters, Ukpo was attacked by unknown gunmen in 2021.

The second rifle was stolen from Area Command Headquarters, Ogidi early last year when the formation was attacked by insurgents.

Painstaking intelligence gathering by undercover operatives led to uncovering of a location where the arms were hidden in Nnobi, Idemili South LGA of the State.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, who commended the operatives for their diligence urged them not to relent until perpetrators of the attacks which claimed Police lives were brought to Justice.

He assured the team that every logistic support they required would be provided until the objectives were achieved.
