“During interrogation, the suspect confessed to having stolen numerous electrical wiring and installation items from different building construction sites in Independence Layout and other parts of Enugu metropolis, using his Peugeot 406 car, which was also recovered.

“The suspect’s confessional statements further led to the arrest of one of his conspirators and main receiver and distributor of the stolen items, Ogbonna Collins Maduabuchi, 40. He was arrested on April 9, 2024, at about 10:50 a.m. He also confessed to the crime.”
