Rivers State Police Command says it has arrested suspected robbers who use specialised keys to unlock parked cars to steal property and money safely tucked in them.

The arrested suspects were also accused of stealing motorcycles and robbing bank customers exiting the banks after their transactions.

Police Public Relations Police (PPRO ) of the Command, Grace Iringe-Koko, in a statement, gave the names of the suspects as Ikenna Obiko, 30, and Isichukwu Eneji, 24 years old.

She said the suspects were arrested along the Olu Obasanjo axis of Port Harcourt by officers of the command who were on routine patrol and checks.

“Both suspects, now in police custody at the Borokiri Police Station, hail from Oguta in Imo State. While Ikenna is married to a wife and two children, Isichukwu has a wife and three children.

“They also admitted to stealing parked motorcycles by using ignition wires to start them, as well as robbing unsuspecting bank customers of their money after withdrawal at banks and ATM centres.

“The two robbery suspects were recently involved in a robbery case involving an Indomie Noodles vehicle where they took N100,000 from the driver.

“Police investigations confirmed that the two suspects had, within this year, stolen three motorcycles, one of which is now at the Borokiri Police Station in Port Harcourt.

“Two of the motorcycles were stolen from where their owners parked them along Choba Road and Eliozu in Obio/Akpo local government area of the state.

“Police investigations show that the suspects both relocated to Port Harcourt last year following the Indigenous People of Biafra crisis in Imo State and other parts of the South East.

“While Ikenna said he was lured into crime by one of his community leaders (now deceased), Isichukwu said his late uncle tutored him in the act of robbery.
