According to the police, 19-year-old Nwoke was arrested alongside members of her gang. A 40-year-old man Samuel Nkemjika who works as bus driver with a transport company Peace Mass Transport Company was also apprehended for kidnapping.
Confirming the arrests, Imo state commissioner of police Chris Ezike said Nwoke was nabbed by the operatives of the command together with two male members of her gang.
He added that Nwoke’s gang was notorious for robbing motorcyclists and traders at gun point. He said that the two motorcycles which the gang used in robbing their victims, one locally made shot gun with three live cartridges were recovered as exhibits from the gang.
The teenage robber said she got N45,000 from her gang in five operations. On his own part, Njemika used his bus in abducting his victims.
He was arrested in Onitsha, Anambra State and has confessed to the crime. He said he got N200,000 from the N2m ransom made from his gang’s kidnap operations. Ezike said the recent major reshuffle he made at the command was responsible for the arrest of Nwoke, Nkemjika and others.
