…. Rescue 2 Victims

The Delta State Police Command after receiving an intelligence report that some suspected kidnappers were hibernating in Okuno, Orogun, have rescued two kidnapped victims.

This was made known in a statement on Sunday by the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, SP. Edafe Bright.

The statement said, “DPO Abraka Division SP Fabian Ayameh led police operatives to their hideout. The DPO swiftly mobilized police operatives alongside members of the Abraka vigilante, and hunters group, stormed the bush, and engaged the suspected kidnappers in a fierce gun duel during which one of the suspects sustained serious gunshot injuries while others escaped.”

“One AK-47 rifle and eleven (11) rounds of 7.62mm ammunition were recovered. The two kidnapped victims (name withheld) were rescued unhurt and have been reunited with their families, while the injured suspect was taken to the hospital where he gave up the ghost while receiving treatment. A manhunt for the other fleeing suspects is ongoing.”

“Eagle Net Special Squad Surveillance team while on routine patrol along Ovirigor Road Ughelli, flagged down a motorcycle. Upon search, a sizeable quantity of weeds suspected to be Indian Hemp was recovered.”

“This necessitated the arrest of the 38-year-old motorcycle rider, Orji Timothy of No. 21 Olotu Street Ughelli.”

“The operatives further extended their search to the suspect’s residence, where a Locally Made Double Barrel Pistol with Two Live Cartridges, Twenty Sachets of 100mg Tramadol, One Sachet of Swinol, and Two Cutlasses were recovered.”

“The CP Delta State CP Abaniwonda has promised Deltans that during his time as Commissioner of Police Delta State, Deltans will sleep with their two eyes closed.”
