The Benue police command has detained three suspected armed robbers who terrorized some areas of the state’s capital Makurdi.
On Tuesday, August 30, SP Catherine Anene, the state police public relations officer, confirmed that they had been arrested.
Before being arrested, it was gathered that the suspects robbed residents within Wurukum, Northbank and Modern Market areas, all in the capital city of Makurdi.
“Fortunately, on August 26, 2022, around 4pm, the said suspects, Fanen Wever, Philip Adanyi, aka Baron, and Albert Akor, aka J-Boy, all male of no fixed address, were arrested at their hideout, within Logo 1 Wurukum, Makurdi.
