The Anambra State Joint Enforcement Team of Operation Clean and Healthy Anambra (Ocha Brigade), has arrested 14 suspects using fake military uniforms to carry out criminal activities in Onitsha and its environs.

The Managing Director of Ocha Brigade, Celestine Anere, disclosed this on Friday while he paraded the suspects whom he said were arrested on Thursday across various locations in Onitsha.

Anere said, “The suspects used the fake army uniforms to commit various forms of crimes including robbery, harassment of innocent residents and forcefully extorting money from motorists and passers-by in the area. Some of them have confessed to the crime of stealing and snatching phones and valuables from commuters and innocent residents.

“Operation Clean and Healthy Anambra; Ocha Brigade, has previously arrested and prosecuted some of the hoodlums on similar cases and will continue to sanitise the state from criminals and drug syndicates.

“The effort to rid the state of criminal elements is in line with the mandate of the state government’s clean, healthy, livable, and prosperous homeland. Let’s secure our state from criminal elements.”
