The Rivers State Police Command says its operatives have arrested at least 13 suspects, including four soldiers and an officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, over robbery.

The suspects allegedly hijacked some food trucks, and diverted them to other locations.

The spokesperson of the command, Grace Iringe-Koko made the disclosure in a statement on Monday.

The PPRO noted that the arrests followed a thorough investigation triggered by an initial arrest of suspected burglary in a private warehouse in Elimgbu community, Ohio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state.

She said a corporal in the Nigerian Army serving in Delta State and an officer of the NSCDC serving in Kabba, Kogi State were the initial suspects arrested.

According to her, preliminary investigation revealed that the arrested security agents usually abandoned their posts to engage in criminal activities in Rivers State.

She added that a larger criminal ring was discovered to have been involved in hijacking trailers loaded with various goods, including fertilizers, imported clothing, and POP cement.

The police recovered stolen items and a white Toyota Hilux used in the gang’s operations, she said.
