The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Abia State Command, Maureen Chinaka confirmed the development, saying that the matter was reported at Ubakala Police Division.

“Yes, we got the report at Ubakala Police division,” she said.

In another report, no fewer than four suspects have been apprehended by the Abia State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NDSCDC) for allegedly operating an illegal refinery in the state.

While parading the suspects at the site of the illegal refinery on Friday, the state Commandant, Usman Alfadarai, described the arrest as “a major boost in the overall fight against all forms of vandalism of critical national assets and infrastructure, illegal dealing in petroleum products and related economic sabotage against our nation, Nigeria”.

He said, “This move which comes barely one week after I took over as the Abia State commandant is a strong statement to the vandals to either turn a new leaf or relocate from the state as the corps will not give any inch of respite to the enemies of the Nigerian economy to operate.”

Alfadarai disclosed that his men made the arrest following a 48-hour sustained surveillance within and around Obiakpu, Obuzo-Asa, in the Ukwa West area of Abia State.
