The Enugu State Police Command says it has arrested two brothers for allegedly killing a security guard and his 12-year-old son in an attempt to steal and sell their uncle’s car.

The state Police Public Relations Officer DSP, Daniel Ndukwe, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday, adding that the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Ammani, deplored such cruel action of the suspects and vowed to prosecute the suspects after investigation. He, however, commiserated with the victims’ family.
