Delta State Police Command has confirmed that its operatives have recovered an abandoned sack containing a pump-action gun and six live cartridges from a fleeing suspect.

The recovery was made by operatives of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), who were on a visibility and confidence-building patrol along the Asaba-Benin Express Road by Issele Asagba.

Commissioner of Police Wale Abass confirmed the development in a statement signed by the command’s spokesperson, DSP Bright Edafe.

According to him: “On June 22, at about 10:30 am, operatives of Rapid Response Squad (RRS), while on visibility and confidence-building patrol along Asaba-Benin Express Road by Issele Asagba, sighted a suspicious-looking young man with a sack bag pretending to be waiting for a vehicle.

“As soon as the operatives alighted from their vehicle, the suspect took to his heels, abandoning the sack bag; he was chased, but he escaped.”

DSP Edafe confirmed that an effort is ongoing to arrest the fleeing suspect.
