The Delta State Police Command has arrested two fleeing suspected members of a gang of kidnappers.
The acting Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Bright Edafe, on Wednesday said the arrest of the suspects was possible because of the proactive crime prevention strategy of the Delta State Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Ali.
He said, “On Tuesday, Eagle-Net Special Squad, while on routine patrol/stop and search duty along Ughelli-Warri Expressway intercepted a Toyota Picnic car navy blue in colour with Reg. No. AAA 464 YA with six male occupants, the countenance of some the passengers crave suspicion hence they were all asked to come down for search.
“At the process of searching, three locally made pistols, two handsets, one mobile phone, cash of N316, 640.00 among others were recovered in possession of two among the occupants.
“The two suspects, Kelvin Godstime, 20, of Upper Afisere in Ughelli North LGA and Samson Ekutu, 23, of Ugbogeme of Udu LGA were arrested. Investigation is ongoing,” he said.
