Two women have been arrested along with their accomplices for allegedly stealing the sum of N400,000 from one Philomoma Nwanye

The suspects were said to have robbed the victim around Nteje in Oyi Local Government Area of the state after boarding the vehicle to Onitsha.

According to a police source, the syndicate who perceived the money in the victim’s bag, had suddenly stopped and requested that she should alight, claiming that they wanted to adjust her seat.

“Immediately the victim came down, the hoodlums sped off with her bag containing the sum of N400,000,” the source said.

Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP. Haruna Mohammed, said that the suspects were arrested by a police patrol team attached to 3-3 Division.

He said: “At about 2pm, one Nwanye Philomina, aged 30 years, from Akwuzu, boarded a taxi at Nteje Boys High School bus stop in Oyi Local Government Area.

“When the vehicle got to Nkwelle Ezunaka, the syndicate suddenly stopped and asked her to come down to enable them adjust the seat before they sped off.

“Victim immediately raised alarm, which attracted the attention of some motorists who pursued the suspects up to Nkwelle community where police patrol team attached to 3-3 Division intercepted and arrested them.”

The PPRO identified the suspects as include Mary Andrew, 20, and Cynthia Agu, 20, both from Enugu State; Collins Okoli, 33, and Friday Ebim, 41, both from Delta State.

Mohammed noted that the suspects were nearly lynched by angry mob if not for the quick intervention of the police.

He added that the snatched money was recovered while the vehicle used in perpetrating the crime was impounded.
