On Thursday, 15th April 2021 at about 8.40p.m., men of ‘A’
Division Warri Patrol team on a routine Aberdeen system of patrol, foiled a kidnap and robbery operation in Warri, Delta State.

Oasis Magazine (OM) gathered that the patrol team heard gun shots suspected to have been released by armed robbers/kidnappers around Odiaen junction in Warri, and swung into action in search of the location where the gunshot was heard.

According to DSP Edafe Bright, Ag. Police Public Relations Officer, Delta Police Command, the patrol team were at a professionally strategic location and with their instinctive reflex swiftly traced the location where the gunshot was heard.

Adding: ”As the patrol team closed in on the hoodlums, they quickly abandoned the victims and shot sporadically and escaped into the bush. They abandoned one tricycle Reg. NO DELTA EFR 060 WZ and one GSM phone.”

Bright also disclosed that two expended cartridges were recovered from the scene.

According to him, ”a married couple, one Alfred Erheren, aged 41 and Stella Maris, aged 39 who were hit by a distant stray bullet pellets from the hoodlums were rescued by the police and taken to the hospital where they were treated and discharged.”

Continuing, the Police PRO said ”the Commissioner of Police, Delta State, CP Ari Muhammed Ali, has mandated that all DPOs ensure that this tempo be sustained and improved upon until these unwanted elements are wiped out completely.”

Meanwhile, investigation is ongoing while serious manhunt for the fleeing hoodlums continues.

The police called on members of the public to give any useful information to the police that will aid the police in bringing these hoodlums to book.
