Confessing to the crime, Ukonu said he got the military uniform from his friend whose brother-in-law is a soldier, confessing that he was arrested while trying to snatch a cell phone from one of his victims.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Adeleye Oyebade, has confirmed the arrest of the suspects, adding that the police have intensified a manhunt for the fleeing suspects with a view to recovering their weapons and ensuring their prosecution.

Oyebade added that the joint effort of the police and members of vigilance group of Ogechi community led to the arrest of one Tochukwu Ugwunsi (aka Cobra no dey sleep) who has been on the police wanted list.

He said, “The suspect was arrested in the course of robbing people of Ogechi community again, while two of his gang member identified as Chidera and Emeka escaped. Manhunt for the fleeing suspects is ongoing.”

The Niger Delta As A Microcosm Of Nigeria | Eugene Abels | TEDxPortHarcourt

Despite being abundant in human and natural resources, violence and decline in development prevail in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. In this talk, Eugene Abels invites us to stop pointing fingers at governments, unite and reflect on our history and also, to change our thought patterns, attitudes and habits in order to create the community/nation we want.

A deliberate Change Agent and technocrat committed to international best practices who has in three decades traversed the Real, Banking and Public Sectors of the Nigerian Economy, Eugene Irefa Abels was born, bred and schooled in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. He hails from two oil producing Communities, Nembe and Finima and believes that they are a microcosm of the Niger Delta Region.

An exponent of the need to exorcise our Colonial past from the souls of our public servants and elected officials, he believes the art of governance has been reduced to the single person pronoun ‘I’ whereas ‘we the people’ holds no relevance.
