Naval officer, one other in police net for alleged robbery in Edo
The Edo State Police Command has arrested an official of the Nigerian Navy, Ibrahim Adamu (25); and an operative of the Nigerian Correctional Service, Abdullahi Abdulwahab (26), over alleged car snatching and armed robbery.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, while parading the suspects on Tuesday, said the suspects were arrested in military uniforms in Ekpoma by operatives based on credible intel. He noted that the suspects had attacked the driver of an unregistered C300 Mercedes Benz car in Sapele, Delta State and snatched the car from him.
They also forced him to transfer N400,000 to their account. They were meant to take the car to Abuja and sell it but were arrested by the police in Ekpoma, Edo State.
“The suspects have made statements and claimed to be personnel of the Nigerian Navy and Correctional Service respectively,” Nwabuzor said.
