The suspects whose names police refused to disclose for the purpose of arresting the fleeing gangsters, according a reliable source, had on Wednesday, October 19, at Okpoko Layout, off Atani Road, double-crossed a Coca-cola van with motorcycles and allegedly relieved the company driver and sales staff of unspecified sums of money belonging to the company.


The money, according to the source, was part of the proceeds just generated from coca-cola distributors during the process of sales and supplies of Coca-cola products within the commercial city.
But lack ran out on them when on a tip-off, the police team intercepted and overpowered the gang and arrested two of them, while two others escaped with bullet wounds, leaving traces of blood to a nearby bush.
The police Area Commander for Onitsha, Mr. Dennis Anyagafu who confirmed the incident while parading the suspects before the press, said N61,000, one chef revolver gun with six rounds of live ammunitions and one AK 47 magazine with some rounds of live ammunitions were recovered from the two robbers.

Anyagafu who restated his vow that no robber or robbers can operate in Onitsha axis and go scot-free, said efforts are underway by the police to track down the fleeing ones.

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
