tracked down by a police patrol team led by
Mr. Mbang Eteng, an Assistant
Superintendent of Police and arrested at an
uncompleted building.
During interrogation, both suspects
confessed to the crime, blaming their action
on drugs. “We were not in our right sense
because we were very high on drugs“,

where the stolen car, assorted guns and
handsets were recovered. They gave the
names of two other members of the gang
as Friday Oguche and Joe Agbo.

Acting Commissioner of Police, Mr Abiodun
