The command’s spokesman, Deputy Superintendent of Police William Aya, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lokoja on Tuesday that the car with registration number ABUJA ABX – 377 – PQ was intercepted on Lokoja-Abuja road..

“Based on the above information, the operatives promptly swung into action, intercepted and arrested one Eze Emmanuel Ndudirim of Awka Local Government Area of Anambra State with the vehicle.

“During interrogation, he could not give a satisfactory explanation of himself and the vehicle. The vehicle had been recovered from him and parked at the police station. The investigation is ongoing,” the spokesman said.
