“But, acting on the information, our men swung into action and three of the suspects were arrested while the police are still on the trail of the fourth suspect.”

Ezeala added that officers of the command, who were on a stop and search duty, arrested two robbery suspects, consequent upon a robbery alarmed raised by  a victim, who was robbed and pushed out of a moving Toyota Camry car with number plate, AV 566 MKD.
