Operatives of the Rivers State Police Command have disrupted a car-snatching gang and detained one of the offenders.
The popular robber named Nnali Osita, is known for robbing bolt/uber drivers throughout the state has been arrested and detained
Nnamdi Omoni, a spokesman for the state police command, said the task was accomplished while responding to a case of car hijacking reported by a Bolt driver named Yusuf Ogunshola.
In a statement released on Thursday, Omoni claimed that Bolt was hired from Effurun in Delta State and brought to Port Harcourt, and drove to Abel Jumbo Street in Diobu’s Mile Two axis, where two other members were already waiting.
The statement read, “On arrival, the Bolt driver was attacked at gunpoint and dispossessed of his personal belongings, including withdrawing the sum of #87,000 from his Bank Account.
“He was thereafter locked in a Toilet belonging to a new Generation Church on the same street.
“In the course of our Investigation, Operatives got some clues which ultimately led them to Gambia Street in Diobu, where they had perfected plans to sell the said sar.
“However on sighting the Police, they abandoned the car and took to flight but the suspect; Nnali Osita, was not lucky, as he was arrested, while others escaped.
“Efforts have been intensified to ensure that the fleeing gang members are arrested and their operational weapons recovered.
“The Commissioner of Police, Eboka Friday has vowed to come hard on all miscreants in the State and is hereby advising all Bolt/Uber or anybody in the transportation business to be circumspect and shun all mouth-watering offers; being the antics deployed by these criminals to attack their victims.”
