Operatives of the Delta State Command’s Eagle-Net Squad, on Aberdeen patrol, have recovered one locally-made cut-to-size double barrel gun and one locally-made shotgun from a fleeing suspect in Warri.

On sighting the police, the suspect alighted from the minibus and fled with the bag.

The Delta State Police Command, led by CP Ari Muhammed Ali, confirmed the report in a statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe.

DSP Edafe also said, “Efforts are on to arrest the fleeing suspect.”
