The suspects were paraded by the PPRO on Thursday at the state police headquarters in Amawbia, Awka South Local Government Area of the state.

According to Okechukwu, the suspects were arrested on March 11, 2016 following to a credible information received from members of the public.

In his words, “The command’s operatives stormed the hospital at No 99 Unatico House, Upper Iweka, Onitsha where two pregnant women, one 16 years old and the other 22 years old were evacuated.
