Law Enforcement Success: Weapons Seized from Ritualists, Cultists, and Kidnappers, Boosting Community Safety

Delta State Police Command operatives have made significant arrests in connection with criminal activities in the state. Among those apprehended is a suspected ritualist found in possession of human hair, alongside a cache of illegal items.

The suspect, identified as Favour Eze, a 24-year-old native of Amasiri Village in Afikpo LGA, Ebonyi State, was apprehended with a locally made pistol and suspected hard drugs, believed to be Loud. These items were concealed in a bag of clothes.

The arrest occurred during a routine stop-and-search operation conducted by Dragon Tactical Patrol Teams along the Ogwashi-Uku/Kwale Road. The suspect was traveling in a red commercial Toyota Sienna space van from Asaba to Warri when the search uncovered the incriminating evidence.

In a separate operation led by ASP Julius Robinson in Ughelli, a 28-year-old member of the Eiye Confraternity was arrested. This arrest led to the apprehension of another suspect, aged 46, in Oghara, Delta State. The latter was found in possession of an automatic pump-action gun at a hotel in Koko Junction.

Further interrogation of the suspects led to the arrest of a 32-year-old individual in Sapele, Delta State, where a new AK-47 rifle and an empty magazine were discovered.

Preliminary investigations suggest that the arrested individuals may be linked to a string of kidnappings in Ughelli, Warri, Sapele, and surrounding areas. The suspects remain in custody as the investigation continues.

Bright Edafe, the command’s Public Relations Officer, has confirmed these developments, highlighting the ongoing efforts of law enforcement to combat crime in the state.
