From Osakhare Erese, Asaba
The Police in Asaba, Delta state have arrested three police officers and a driver attached to the senator representing Delta North, senator Peter Nwobuoshi in connection with the alleged burgling of his Asaba residence by unknown gunmen.
The hoodlums, it was gathered, invaded the senator’s house at the early hours of Monday and allegedly carted away unspecified amount of dollar and naira notes running into millions.
It was also gathered that the gunmen stole laptops, expensive clothes, jewelries and other valuables worth millions of naira.
According to sources, most of the stolen items belong to the wife of the senator.
An anonymous source disclosed that the operation lasted for about 30 minutes while the police and other security personnel on guard at the senator’s house along Olaruwanju close, near Interbua, Asaba, the state capital were nowhere to be found.
It was learnt, however, that the wife of the senator who was forced to wake up while the hoodlums were looting, secretly contacted neighbors who in turn shut sporadically into the air to scare away the “Bad Boys”
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka who confirmed the report, said the police are investigating the matter to ascertain how the gunmen gained access into the house unchallenged.
According to Aniamaka, the GRA police division had taken up the matter immediately it was reported, while the police who were posted to the place but were not on duty post would also face the music.
