A suspected fake Military Officer, one Seaman Okonkwo Ebuka Emmanuel, dressed in military uniform to deceive the police on stop and search along Ogwashi-Uku/Ibusa expressway has been arrested along side two others – Ugochukwu Eludi and Chuks Ogbonna for allegedly stealing a Honda Crosstour saloon car with Reg. No. Abuja (BWR 199 PV).
According to the PPRO of the Delta State Command, the suspects were heading from Kwale to Asaba on the 30th of January, 2018, when they were intercepted by the Dragon Patrol Team 21, led by officer Imonikhe Imo.
He said that questions put to the suspects with regards to ownership of the vehicle could not be answered, prompting the officers to search the vehicle where they discovered a wrap of Indian Hemp, two phones and the vehicle particulars.
The PPRO, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, said that call was put across to the number on the vehicle papers, only to discover the vehicle was stolen from one Ogwe Chidiebere in Lagos.
Aniamaka however, confirmed that the suspects and the stolen vehicle had been handed over to Ogwashi-Uku Division for further investigation.
