The Commissioner of Police, Delta State Command, Wale Abass, has given kudos to his officers for arresting a suspected cultist and murderer.

Abass had directed the DPO Oghara, CSP Olasunkanmi Musiliu, to unravel what led to the death of one Destiny Idi, 27, of Ovade Community at Ovie Road Ogharafe, by some suspected cultists

Musiliu, who led policemen attached to the Division’s surveillance anti-crime patrol team and embarked on a discreet investigation, trailed the mastermind of the act, the same day, while acting on an eyewitness account of the murder of the victim, he stormed one hotel in Oghara (name withheld) and arrested one Charles Debi-Abate ‘m’ age 39 years.

Debi-Abate is a member of Aro Bagger Confraternity and a native of Oghara but a resident of Mosagar because of his involvement in the murder.

Delta State Police Command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the development, saying preliminary investigation showed that the suspect was part of the syndicate that murdered one Onyekachi Chibuzor, A.K.A. Odogwu, aged 42, on July 28, 2023, adding that he has been involved in numerous cult-related attacks on perceived opponents in Oghara.

“Although the suspect denied being part of the gang that murdered the said Solomon Idi, he mentioned the duo of Onyeka and Paul (both surnames unknown) as those responsible for the murder.

“The suspect led the operatives to the premises of the said Onyeka and Paul, but the team did not meet them. On a thorough search of their premises, two English pump action guns, 20 live cartridges, and one GLK Benz SUV with registration no. RBC-995-DG were recovered.

“Suspects and exhibits are in custody while the manhunt for the fleeing suspects is ongoing,” Edafe stated.
