Police Nab 18-Year-Old “Most Wanted” Leader of a Robbery Ring

The Anambra State Police netted a big fish this week with the arrest of 18-year-old Anichede Akachukwu, alias “Star B”.  Police described Akachukwu as a “notorious and most wanted” armed robber and cult leader, according to a statement by spokesperson SP Tochukwu Ikenga.

Officers apprehended Akachukwu on May 17th in Uruagu village, Oba, within Idemili South County. Ikenga revealed that Akachukwu led a criminal gang that plagued not just Anambra’s Ogbaru County but also Asaba city in the neighboring Delta State.

Acting on a tip, the statement revealed, police apprehended Akachukwu while he sought medical attention for a gunshot wound, possibly sustained during a prior clash with security forces. The details of the prior incident were not disclosed.

The recovered haul included a vehicle believed to be the gang’s getaway car, ammunition, and other evidence tying him to criminal activity. Akachukwu’s arrest is likely to bring a sense of security to residents impacted by his reign of terror.
