Police have arrested two suspects for stealing 26 water tanks at Amube-Ohum in Orba community, in the Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu State.

The suspects, Chiegeonu Eze, 22, and Obinna Ezeugwu, 23, were arrested on April 23.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, on Monday in Enugu.

He said the duo, who specialised in stealing water tanks from construction sites in the community, were arrested while attempting to steal two tanks from a site.

“The two tanks and seven other tanks were recovered from them, while their confessional statements led to further recovery of 17 other tanks from one of their receivers,” he said.

Ndukwe added that the owners of the tanks have been identified, while the suspects would be charged to court.
