Three people have been detained by the Nigerian police in Delta State in connection with the suspected murder and rape of a woman and her husband.
There have been rumors that the accused worked for their victim. The sources also admitted to engaging in online fraud.
The assassination of One Mr. Isaac Odubu and his wife in the Amai Community was exposed by their arrest, according to Muhammed Ali, the Delta State Commissioner of Police, who was speaking about the incident.
The names of the three accused were Chukwudi Sunday, Onyebuchi Paul, and Ifeanyi Enuma.
Mr. Ali stated;
“They attacked the couple’s home at night to rob them, but the pair was murdered in the process. They were looking for money to buy phones and data. The wife was violently raped by two of the offenders, Chukwudi Sunday and Onyebuchi Paul, before she tragically died. The suspects will face charges in court after the inquiry is over.
Ali also disclosed that the command had found guns that thugs had stolen from police officers they had killed;
He also said;
“These five AK-47 rifles recovered from these hoodlums belong to our officers. They killed our men and collected their rifles.
“On the cult clashes in Sapele, Agbor, Abraka, Obiaruku, and Ogwashi-Uku communities, I deployed tactical teams to join forces with the DPOs and so far, about 62 suspected cultists have been arrested and charged to court. I can tell you that sanity has been restored in these areas.
“I have visited Obiaruku and Owa-Oyibu communities, where I met the various stakeholders and traditional rulers to discuss ways to curb the menace caused by the activities of kidnappers in their communities and adequate deployments have been made in the affected areas and relative peace achieved.
“On June 16, 22, operatives of the command’s Rapid Response Squad, while on a visibility patrol around Abraka town, received information that a man was kidnapped along Eroho-Otoro Road, Abraka.
“The operatives responded swiftly, and gave the hoodlums a tireless chase, but the four-man kidnapping gang noticing that the operatives were closing up on them, abandoned the victim, their operational motorcycles, and fled into the bush.
“The victim was rescued unhurt and has since been reunited with his family. Manhunt for the fleeing suspects is ongoing.”
