The Federal Capital Police Command has made a significant breakthrough in its fight against crime with the arrest of a notorious armed robbery kingpin identified as Chukwuemeka Oputa, also known as Pounds and Dollar, along with four members of his gang.

SP Josephine Adeh, the spokesperson of the command, disclosed this information in a statement released on Monday, April 8, 2024. According to Adeh, the suspects confessed to their involvement in a series of armed robberies and other criminal activities within the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). Additionally, they were identified as members of a confraternity cult group known as Vikings.

The statement revealed that the arrest of Chukwuemeka Oputa, aged 38, from Umuaka, Njaba, Imo State, was made possible following the apprehension of Moses Hassan, a cultist and gang member, on February 14, 2024.

Subsequent investigations led to the arrest of three other members of the gang: Praise Etta, aged 30, from Etung, Cross River State; Rafael Dav, also known as Raffy, aged 28, from Guma, Benue State; and Thomas Akange, aged 38, from Markudi, Benue State. All suspects confessed to their involvement in various criminal activities in the FCT.

During the arrest, law enforcement officers recovered several exhibits, including four locally fabricated AK47 rifles, three locally made rifles using cartridges, an English pistol, a locally made pistol, a Dane gun, and various ammunitions.

Efforts are currently underway to recover additional exhibits believed to be in possession of the suspects. The Commissioner of Police, FCT, CP Benneth C. Igweh, psc, mni, reiterated his unwavering commitment to ensuring the safety of residents in the FCT. He urged the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities to the police through designated emergency lines.
