Fortunately, CIDU operatives who were conducting anti-criminality in the area saw the victim shouting for help, at that instance, said operatives approached the victim who immediately narrated the incident while pointing in the direction of the suspect. Acting on the information, the operatives chased the suspect which led to his arrest, and recovered from his possession the said stolen items and a caliber 38 revolver loaded with five live ammunition.
