Delta State Police Commissioner, CP Ari Muhammed Ali FCIA, has deployed tactical teams to Sapele LGA in an effort to restore order following recent cult clashes in the area. These clashes have resulted in several injuries and even deaths in the affected areas, causing great concern among the citizens of the state.
Acting on credible intelligence, a combined team of the Command Special Anti-Cult Unit (SACU), operatives of the Department of State Service (DSS), and men of Operation Delta Hawk were able to track down and arrest one Chief Joseph Ologbo, a 37-year-old man from Otor Community in Sapele LGA. Ologbo is suspected of being a financier and active member of the Aro Bagger cult group, which has been identified as one of the main groups responsible for the recent violence.
A search of Ologbo’s vehicle led to the recovery of an unlicensed pump action gun, two live cartridges, one expended cartridge, and an Aro Bagger cult regalia. The suspect is currently making a statement and will be charged in court upon the completion of the investigation.
In a separate incident, operatives of the Decoy Squad arrested four suspects in Ogwashi-Uku for their involvement in a syndicate that specializes in defrauding unsuspecting victims of their money. The suspects, Allison Louis, Sunday David, Peter Akagbai, and Chibuzor Elumeze, were found in possession of a tricycle and 15 different bank ATM cards. During the course of the investigation, the suspects admitted to committing fraud within the Ogwashi-Uku and Asaba metropolises, with POS operators and filling stations as their primary victims. They had been using the ATM cards to purchase items and make withdrawals, then falsely reporting to their banks that the transactions were not successful, leading to the victims’ accounts being wrongly debited and the suspects’ accounts being credited. The suspects have so far defrauded their victims of several millions of naira. The investigation is ongoing.
