Charges approved against alleged Metro Vancouver gangster Ekene Anigbo

CHARGES have been approved against 22-year-old Ekene Anigbo after an arrest was made by Vancouver Police on Thursday.

“Anigbo is believed to be involved in the Lower Mainland Gang Conflict,” said Constable Tania Visintin on Friday. “In May, Anigbo was listed as one of the VPD’s ‘Top 6’ gang members who presented a risk to public safety.”

Ekene Anigbo was wanted BC-wide for multiple outstanding arrest warrants for breaching his probation and assault. On October 7, investigators from the VPD’s Organized Crime Section, working under Taskforce Threshold, located and arrested Anigbo in Richmond.

“At the time of his arrest, Anigbo had a rifle, a handgun, and ammunition in his possession,” said Visintin.  “Today, he has been was charged with four new firearms offences related to these weapons and he remains in jail pending his next court date.”

Taskforce Threshold was initiated by the Vancouver Police in May of 2021 in response to gang activity and escalating gang violence in Metro Vancouver. It consolidates resources and expertise from the VPD’s Investigations and Operations Divisions to prevent gang violence by investigating incidents as they occur and proactively investigating persons involved in the gang conflict.
