Armed men heading to Taraba State stopped by Police
Police in Ebonyi State have apprehended two buses conveying some persons with arms and ammunition.
The incident happened near Onu-Ebonyi Bridge along Abakaliki-Ogoja federal highway, in the Izzi Local Government Area of the state.
Also found with the suspects were military uniforms.
After they were intercepted by men of the Safer Highways Patrol Team, the suspects said they were Nollywood actors and were heading to Taraba State for a movie shoot. They were, however, driven to the police headquarters in Abakaliki for further questioning.
The spokesman of the police in the state, Loveth Odah, confirmed the arrests.
“Yes, we intercepted buses carrying some persons with arms and ammunition going to Taraba but they are not herdsmen, they are Nollywood actors.
“They were wearing army uniforms and we are investigating the matter. I will give details of the matter as soon as we got every detail,” Odah said.
