Police nab two with hard drugs in Delta

Two individuals in possession of illegal hard drugs were taken into custody by the Delta State Commissioner of Police Monitoring Unit in Asaba.

Emeka Ozumu, 49, and Patrick Otukam, 30, were the suspects who were taken into custody on June 13.

They turned out thirteen bottles of codeine, twenty-three sachets of tramadol, and other hard substances.

In a statement, SP Bright Edafe, the public relations officer for Delta State Police, acknowledged the news.

In the meantime, CP Abaniwonda Olufemi, the Commissioner of Police for Delta State, has encouraged young people to abstain from drug misuse and other sorts of criminal activity since it poses a health risk and may also encourage them to commit crimes.

Olufemi stated that members of the Raiders Squad, Crack Squad, and Monitoring Unit had been deployed to crack down on drug-peddling hideouts in the state.

Still in Delta, Bishop Godfrey Erhivwinoja, the founder and General Overseer of the Manifestations of Holy Ghost Ministry, along with his wife and church elders, have been arrested in Delta State for their involvement in an alleged kidnapping plot.

During a police raid, military-style uniforms were found among Bishop Erhivwinoja’s associates.

The group was apprehended by a combined team of security agents after an alleged attempt to kidnap a fellow bishop in Agbarho, located in the Ughelli North Local Government Area.

Following their arrest, Bishop Erhivwinoja, his wife, and several church members were detained at the Ughelli 'A' Division police station. His church is situated on Owhofasa Street in Agbarho.

The police tracked Bishop Erhivwinoja to his hideout after learning about the arrest of his wife and other church members.

A local source reported that one of the detained elders confessed that Bishop Erhivwinoja had sent threatening text messages to the targeted bishop, whose church has a larger congregation.

The messages demanded a payment of N150,000 and included threats of kidnapping and assassination.
