The police also recovered one locally-made double-barrel pistol, three live cartridges, one jack knife, two wraps of substances suspected to be Indian hemp, one Samsung Galaxy, one iPhone, two black berets, a driver’s license, one GT bank ATM card, one hand chain and five finger rings from the suspects.

The suspects include Daniel Anikpe and Chikeluba James Ani both 27-year-olds.

They were arrested during a routine stop-and-search duty by the police who intercepted a black Toyota Camry car with Reg. No. ABH 911 GW with two male occupants.

The Delta State Police Command, led by CP Ari Muhammed Ali, confirmed the report in a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe.

He said, “After a painstaking search was conducted on the suspects and the vehicle, one locally made double barrel pistol, three live cartridges, one jack knife, two wraps of substances suspected to be Indian hemp, one Samsung Galaxy, one iPhone, two black berets, a driver’s license, one GT bank ATM card,
one hand chain and five finger rings were recovered.”

According to the Police image-maker, “Investigation later revealed that suspects are into internet fraud and one of the Suspects Daniel Anikpe admitted that he got the gun about eight months ago from his friend named Tata (surname unknown) who is currently in Ogwashi-Uku prison for an offence of armed robbery.

“He also stated that he bought the gun at a cost of twenty-five thousand naira (#25,000).

“He said in the course of his cybercrime activities, issues bordering on sharing formula usually emanates with his partners in crime, hence he bought the gun to exert revenge on whoever tries to swindle him of his ill-gotten money.”

DSP Edafe said, “Investigation is ongoing.”
