Notorious cultist arrested for robbery in Bayelsa

Sep 14, 2022

A notorious cultist and ex-convict has been arrested for robbery in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa state capital. 


The suspect identified as Oyinkumor Benson aka Bode, was arrested by the Bayelsa State Volunteers led by its chairman, Hon Oyinkuro Lucky Asanakpo.


The gang leader who just returned from a three year sojourn at Okaka correctional centre was alleged to have stolen laptops and phones from his victim a few days ago. 


The young man who had been on the surveillance list of the agency was finally traced to the Amarata axis of Yenagoa over the weekend where he was arrested. 


During interrogation, he confessed committing the crime and was promptly handed over to the conventional Police Force (the Operation Doo-Akpo) for further investigation. 


In his reaction, Asanakpo on behalf of the security head of the state, Brigadier Gen. Eric Angaye (Rtrd), reiterated the commitment of the agency to fight crime decisively and banish any forms of crime and criminality from the Yenagoa metropolis and of course the suburbs.


He asked for cooperation of all citizens because fighting crime is a collective responsibility.
