On the 5th of February, 2024 at about 8:am, while men of Dragon Patrol were conducting ‘stop and search’ along Kwale – Ogwashi-Uku Expressway, they intercepted a commercial Sienna Bus conveying passengers from Ughelli to Asaba.

The team subjected the passengers to a random search, during which one locally fabricated Pistol and two live cartridges were recovered from 23-year-old Fidelis Akpos, a resident of Ewhu Community Ughelli South Local Government Area.

The suspect concealed the gun and cartridges inside a polythene bag containing smoked fish to serve as a decoy, but the professionally trained Policemen uncovered the exhibit despite his antics.

The Delta State Commissioner of Police, Abaniwonda Olufemi, assured citizens of the state of a peaceful, safe and secure Delta State.

He further warned that all forms of criminality, lawlessness, or behaviour that contravenes the laws of the land will be dealt with accordingly.

The suspect is in custody and the investigation is ongoing.
