UMUAHIA— A six-man gang allegedly behind the killing of a couple, Darlington and Chinyere Uzoma, in Umuahia, Abia State has been smashed by operatives of the Abia State Police Command.

The gang was said to have shot dead the couple after robbing them of their daily sales along Secretariat Road, Ogurube Layout Road, Umuahia on January 25, 2020.

It was gathered that the suspects had earlier robbed one Uwaeme Chinedu of some valuables as well as snatched a Toyota Sienna bus with number plate, RBC 477 RL, at World Bank Estate.

Police sources added that the gang was behind the series of robbery attacks and car snatching in Umuahia and environs.

Items recovered from them include two pump action guns, two locally made short guns, three live cartridges and one expended cartridge.
