The Anambra State Police Command said it arrested a gunman terrorising the Awada community in the Idemili North Local Government Area of the state.

SP Tochukwu Ikenga, the Anambra State Police spokesman, in a statement on Monday, said the officers of the command arrested the suspect on Sunday, adding that an AK-47 rifle was recovered from him.

Ikenga said, “Police officers in Anambra State on Sunday arrested an adult male holding a bag in Awada, Idemili North LGA.

“The man, on sighting the police, took to his heels and was chased until he was caught and overpowered.

“When the bag was searched, it was found to contain an AK-47 rifle with breech No. 25008266. A search of the database has shown that it was not among firearms on charge to Anambra State Command.

“On interrogation, the suspect disclosed that the weapon was procured for a showdown with a rival cult group.”
