The Edo State Police Command recently held a public display of 21 suspects who were apprehended for a range of criminal activities, including armed robbery, cultism, attempted murder, unlawful possession of firearms, conspiracy, pipeline vandalism, housebreaking, stealing, possession of illicit drugs, and incitement of communal conflict. These arrests were the culmination of intensive efforts by law enforcement operatives across the state and were made possible thanks to credible information provided by vigilant residents.

During the announcement at the State Police Command in Benin City, the State Commissioner of Police, Funsho Adegboye, underscored the significance of the community’s cooperation in combating crime. He described the recent arrests as a “harvest of criminals” and expressed gratitude for the actionable tips received from the public.

Furthermore, Adegboye issued a stern warning to parents, urging them to caution their children, particularly those enrolled in universities, against becoming entangled in criminal activities orchestrated by unscrupulous individuals. He highlighted the vulnerability of young people to manipulation by nefarious elements and urged parents to actively discourage such involvement.

Among the suspects paraded by the police command were individuals such as Ovie Samuel, Stanley Itota, Felix Oputi, Kadiri Hassan, and Alex Akaeze. These individuals were apprehended in possession of a significant quantity of ICE (hard drugs), totaling 1,080 kilograms and valued at N20 million. The display of these suspects serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing efforts of law enforcement agencies to uphold law and order and protect the community from criminal elements.
