Police recover three AK-49 rifles in Delta criminal hideout

Operatives of the Delta State Police Command have burst a criminal hideout in Agbarho, Ughelli North Local Government Area, in its relentless fight against crime and criminality in the locality.

The command said it received an intelligence report from a concerned vigilante member in Agbarho (name withheld) on the hideouts of some suspected kidnappers who have been terrorizing Ughelli, Agbarho, Warri, Sapele, and environs in the bush at Uwurghelli village by the rail tracks.

Sequel to the intelligence, the Divisional Police Officer of Agbarho Police Division, Josephine Ekebuike, swiftly detailed and led police operatives to the bush, cordoned off the entire area and carried out a search during which sack bags were found hidden in the bush.

Upon search of the sack bags, three AK-49 rifles, two AK-47 rifles, and 207 rounds of 7.62mm live ammunition were recovered.

Consequently, the command has launched a manhunt for the fleeing suspected kidnappers.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Olufemi Abaniwonda, commended the DPO and men of Agbarho Division for their prompt response to the intelligence.

“Police-community partnership is the best for optimal results,” the police boss said.
