According to a statement by the spokesman of the command, Haruna Mohammed, the alleged vehicle thieves were arrested through a combined effort involving detectives from the Central Police Station in Onitsha and a team from the Federal Highway Patrol. The suspects identified as Ifeanyi Jude (25) and Okwudili Okoli (30) were arrested shortly after stealing a car belonging to a traditional ruler whom they used to work with.
