by Ikem Emmanuel

The Delta State Police Command recently paraded three suspected kidnappers and recovered four AK-47 rifles as part of their efforts to combat kidnapping in the state.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, DSP Bright Edafe, highlighted that kidnapping is a major concern in Delta State. He mentioned that the achievements of the police are a result of the policing strategies implemented by the Acting Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun.

These recent achievements demonstrate the command’s preparedness for effective policing during the ember months and beyond. Kidnapping, a crime of significant concern, has been dealt a significant blow through the swift policing interventions of the Delta State Police Command.

Edafe recounted that about two months ago, the command had arrested some suspected kidnappers, including Ese-Oghene Ezekiel, who was involved in the kidnapping of his own brother and members of his household in Oha community, Okpe LGA. During the kidnapping, one of the victims, Regina Ogana, was tragically shot dead.


In a recent operation on October 13, 2023, the Divisional Police Officer of Oreorokpe mobilized the Divisional Anti-Crime Patrol team. They conducted a successful operation in Ofuoma, Ughelli North LGA, resulting in the arrest of two male suspects, James Aboyo and Solomon Gbolode, who were involved in the earlier incident. Additionally, they arrested Blessing Deco, while other gang members managed to escape.

The suspects are currently assisting the police with their investigation, while efforts are ongoing to track down the fleeing members of the gang.

During the operation, the police also recovered significant items from the suspects, including four AK-47 rifles, a pump-action gun, five packs of improvised explosives, and 58 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, among other items.
