Buy stolen cellphone, face the music Police


Buyers of stolen mobile phones will now pay higher price if they are caught by the police. The warning came from the police in Delta State, at the parade of some notorious cellphone robbers, who go about on motorbikes to social events where they could find easy preys.

Buyers of stolen mobile phones will now pay higher price if they are caught by the police. The warning came from the police in Delta State, at the parade of some notorious cellphone robbers, who go about on motorbikes to social events where they could find easy preys.

The gang, made up of secondary school students, school dropouts and cellphone repairers, were operating around Ogwashi-Uku, Ubulu-Uku, Umunede and Agbor.

Parading the nine-man gang, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, ASP Oluseyi Okuwobi, said there had been series of reported cases of stolen handsets before the Divisional Police Officer at Ogwasi-Uku, Mr. Ita Selong, led his men to Ubulu-Uku during a burial ceremony where five members of the gang were arrested.
She said that the gang specialized in dispossessing people of their cellphones inside commercial buses, and at social events.
Also a motorcycle with three of the men that travelled from Agbor to Ubulu-Uku for wakekeeping was impounded by the police.

Okuwobi gave the names of the suspects as Matthew Aguei (19); Dubem Willy (21); Emeka Ezeka (19); Sunday Nwaeke (18); Dunmi James (17); Israel Erikume (18); Kentoa Anthony (24); and Christopher Nwabuokei. She said that the receiver of stolen handsets whose name is Busola is helping the police in their investigations.

In another development, the Anti-Car Theft Unit of the command also recovered four cars, namely, Honda Accord 20 model, one red Opel Omega, with registration number DC 598 RSH, one Toyota Corolla Car marked DT 62380 L and Peugeot 504 Salon car marked BP 691 LND fully loaded with Indian hemp.
Police warned those buying stolen handsets to stop as they would receive more punishment than the thieves.
