Police Deploy 270 officers, 3 sniffer dogs in search of kidnapped DPO



COMMISSIONER of Police in Delta State, Mr. Zanna Ibrahim has said that over 270 officers have been deployed as a search party for the kidnapped Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of ‘C’ Division, Asaba, SP Valentine Mbalu.

Speculations were rife at the weekend that SP Mbalu who was abducted on March 5 might have allegedly be killed by his hostage takers, as a decomposing corpse purportedly found in Umunede bush was allegedly said to be his.

But Ibrahim denied that the corpse of the DPO was found in Umunede bush, adding however that from the confessional statement made by two suspects arrested in connection with the kidnap, the officer may be presumed dead.

He said though the command was yet to lay hands on the corpse, at present, the search was on by over 270 officers, adding that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) has approved the deployment of three sniffer dogs to help locate where the officer is or buried.
Zanna said March 15 while acting on available intelligence, operatives of SAKCCS arrested one Suleiman Ibrahim a.k.a Carlos ‘m’, aged 29 years, a native of Adamawa State, at Aduwawa area of Benin City, Edo State and Yusuf Hamisu ‘m’ of Eyan Benin City.

“The suspects confessed being members of a five-man kidnap gang that kidnapped the DPO and further disclosed that the victim died in their custody on 6/3/2017 as a result of his health challenges.

“The suspects have also unveiled the identities of the gang leader and other members of the kidnap gang who operate between Edo, Kogi, Delta, Enugu and Anambra States.

“On further interrogation, suspects also confessed to the kidnap of two civil servants attached to Delta State Government House, the murder of one police officer and one woman, along Benin/Lagos by-pass in the month of February,” he added.

He said one of the suspects, Suleiman Ibrahim allegedly confessed to the crime and narrated how the officer was abducted, adding that their gang was linked to the kidnap and murder of the mother-in-law of one of the aides to the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa about two months ago.

“The suspect said the he was sent to buy food for the officer but was later called by other gang members not to bother, saying the officer has past on; hence he felt the officer may have died,” Zanna explained.

Water tank driver accuses Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Rivers




Self-acclaimed Port Harcourt First Son, Duncan Mighty is currently trending on social media for the wrong reasons.

A water tank driver, Okabam John has accused singer, Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

It was gathered that the incident reportedly happened on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at about 9:40am when the driver was on duty.

Narrating his ordeal to some Civil Rights Activists on Tuesday November 24, after he was allegedly discharged from the hospital, John, a native of Elele Town in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state and an employee of Julius Berger Nigeria Limited, claimed that the musician struck him on the head with a traditional staff made of elephant tusk.

According to the driver, while on duty a private car was parked close to his water filling spot. He tried notifying the driver who refused to wind down. He reportedly bent his head to talk to the driver only to discover it was Duncan Mighty.

John said that before he could speak, the singer allegedly struck his head using a traditional staff. He said the second strike was blocked with his hand. He claimed that he could not see when the singer drove off as his eyes were covered with blood.

Confirming the incident on Tuesday, one Ndubueze Obodowhuo, accused Duncan Mighty of using his VIP status to intimidate his people. He also shared a ‘medical report’ stating that John was treated for “shoulder dislocation and scalp laceration.”

Mr John is now calling on his employer, the management of Julius Berger, Security Agencies and Human Rights Organisations to help him get justice. His post below:

“This is Mr. OKABAM JOHN a native of Elele town in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers State, he’s currently employed by JULIUS BERGER NIG.PLC in Port Harcourt and his service engagement is within Judges quarters elelenwo-street, GRA Port Harcourt.

“According to Mr. OKABAM JOHN a Water-tank driver with Julius Berger, Tanker number – B8751, On Saturday 21st of November 2020 at about 9:40am while he was on duty. A private car was parked close to his water filling spot, he tried notifying the driver who refused to wine down, he bent his head to talk with the driver surprisingly, it was Duncan mighty.

“Before he could explain, his head was struck by Duncan mighty using a traditional staff(Elephant tusk), the second strike was blocked with his hand. He(Okabam John) didn’t see how the artist drove off because, blood covered his eyes at that moment.

“Mr. Okabam John narrated this incident after being discharged from the hospital. Duncan doesn’t show up when he’s publicly needed, rather he uses his VIP influence to undo his people. Celebrities should be celebrated by their positivity, their influence shouldn’t pose danger to the society rather it should serve as liberation to the people.

“Mr. OKABAM JOHN is calling on the management of Julius Berger, Security Agents and Human Rights Organisations for justice to be done in his case, to avoid a re-occurance.”
