Anambra State Police Command has arrested two robbers aged between 20 and 22 years for depriving susceptible citizens of their valuables.
One of the suspect hailed from Enugu State and the other from Ebonyi State.
Men of the Command attached to Harbour Division last week apprehended the robbers on the Second Niger Bridge.
The Police team which was on surveillance patrol on the Bridge to prevent vandals from stealing expansion joints were alerted to activities of the gang near the Obosi end of the bridge.
The Covert Police Team monitored the gang and dived in on them arresting two of the gangsters while others fled.
Two daggers and five sim cards removed from previously stolen phones were recovered from the suspects.
The Commissioner of Police CP Aderemi Adeoye commended the Police Team for its vigilance and courage in confronting the gang.
He further directed that owners of the recovered sim cards be located with a view to assembling evidence for successful prosecution of the arrested suspects.
