Robbers operate with wooden AK-47 in Enugu

SOME of the robbers that had been terrorising Nsukka and adjourning communities, operating with wooden guns, met their waterloo when a combined unit of Counter Terrorism Unit of the Enugu State Command of the Nigeria Police Force and the Military responded to a distress call, Sunday.

They killed one and injured another. Others allegedly escaped with gun-shot injuries at Ohodo, in Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of the state, along Enugu-Nsukka Expressway.

It was alleged that the robbers were robbing the occupants of two buses with number plates AA 623 JAL and XB 396 BSA, before the operatives intervened.

Items recovered from the hoodlums were four wooden guns, carved in form of AK-47 rifles, two torch-lights and a hand-set.
