Police Arrest 4 Over Death Of Retired Police Officer, 2 Others In Sapele

Police in Delta State have arrested four suspected internet fraudsters popularly known as Yahoo boys over the death of three persons including a retired Police Deputy Superintendent.

The police gave their names as Kelly Daniel(24), Kevwe Goodluck (26), Esosa Wisdom(28), Efe Bethel(22).

GUNMEN on Tuesday night at about 7:30pm after a heavy downpour allegedly shot three persons including a 64 year old retired Deputy Superintendent of Police, David Amenkhienan,
to death along Ufuoma Atose street, off Shell road in Sapele, Delta State.

One of the deceased popularly referred to as ‘chairman’ was said to be celebrating the acquisition of a new car with his friends along Shell road when the gunmen suddenly emerged chasing them and finally shooting them at the front of the retired police officer’s compound.

The gunmen numbering about four were said to have shot two of the boys including the celebrant while a stray bullet was said to have killed the retired police DSP.

Edafe Bright, the Delta State Police Command spokesman while confirming the arrest, said he was yet to get the details.

Investigations revealed that the shooting might not be unconnected with a case of Yahoo business gone sour.

A source who craved anonymity said the ‘celebrant’ had just relocated to Sapele from Port Harcourt and this was his third week in the neighborhood.

“He started the celebration around morning yesterday, buying drinks for some of us. I left there after the rain stopped falling only to hear that that he has been shot by some group of boys whom I learnt had gone to look for him at another joint not far from where he was killed,” the source said.

When newsmen visited the scene today, several persons including serving police officers were seen weeping.

“He just retired last year and he had not even collected his pension, what a death,” a police officer lamented.
