The crminal suspects
The gallant operatives of the Nigerian Police Force from the Delta State Police Command, has arrested a 32-year-old Sergeant Anthony Okologbo, attached to the Nigeria Army Engineering Regiment, Onitsha, Anambra State for driving a stolen vehicle.

According to a report by New Telegraph, Okologbo with No. 03NA/53/4586, was intercepted in a stolen Rav4- Jeep with registration number EKY 297 EJ. He was driving the car, while in army uniform and had two other occupants with him.

The two occupants have been identified as Kelly Ogun, 38, of Peoples Club, Mkpor Road, Onitsha and Chiko Kiku, 25, of Ugberami community, Ughelli, Delta State.

Okologbo, who allegedly attempted to run after being arrested, allegedly struggled with men of the Dragon Patrol Team 22, stationed along Kwale/Ogwashi-Uku highway, before he was overpowered. He was said to have struggled with the policemen after they asked him for the vehicle particulars.

While speaking to a correspondent yesterday, the Delta State Commissioner of Police, Zanna M. Ibrahim, disclosed that upon search of the car, the vehicle particulars were found and indicated that a woman, Florence Uboh, of Ogunu road, Warri, is the owner.

Ibrahim said: “Further inquiries revealed that the vehicle was robbed at gun point from Florence two days back at Ughelli.”

As Ibrahim was briefing journalists that Okologbo is a fake soldier, Okologbo angrily warned the CP to stop disparaging him, insisting that he was a serving soldier.  He urged the CP to carry out proper investigations before concluding.

He said: “He has my Identity Card (ID), he should go and investigate it and stop calling me a fake soldier.”

The suspect did not stop at that, he told those that cared to listen that even if he should explain his role in the crime, nobody would understand.

He explained further: “I was called upon to drive the car to Onitsha. I’m not a robber, neither am I a fake soldier. None of you here can understand why I drove the car.”
