The Delta State Police Command has arrested a notorious drug dealer.

The 50-year-old narcotics dealer, Lucky Okpoko, was arrested with 545 wraps of weed suspected to be Indian hemp, 102 wraps of skunk and seven wraps of readymade weeds suspected to be Indian hemp.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Bright Edafe, stated this on Monday in Asaba.

According to PPRO, the suspect has given useful information to the police and investigation has commenced into further possible links/recoveries with a view to arresting others that may also be involved in the illicit drug business.

Edafe appealed to members of the public to continue to support the police by giving credible information that would help in bringing criminals to justice, assuring members of the public that their identities would be protected and the information given treated with utmost confidentiality.

Also, the police command rescued one Mr James Emmanuel, who was kidnapped on Saturday at the Usiefurun community by the Railway Bridge in the Ughelli South Local Government Area of the state.

He said, “On April 10, 2021, the Commander, Eagle Net Special Squad, received a distress call of an attempted robbery/kidnap at Usiefurun community in the Ughelli South LGA and quickly mobilised operatives to the area; on their arrival, the hoodlums on sighting the police opened fire on them.

“The police retaliated in full force, overpowered the hoodlums and forced them to abandon the victim and escaped into a nearby bush with gunshot injuries.

“The victim, Mr James Emmanuel, was eventually rescued and his snatched white Toyota Venza car with number plate GBJ 456 FD was recovered.”

He said efforts were been intensified for the arrest of the fleeing hoodlums.
