An elderly man in Delta has been arrested by the police along with his three sons on allegations of armed robbery.

The four unidentified suspects were apprehended in Asaba, the state capital, after a distress call.

The accused were said to have robbed a resident of the area of N72,000 which led to the police being invited and three other robbery suspects being caught by the officers living in an uncompleted building said to belong to the father of the boys.

Vanguard reports:

State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Celestina Kalu, who paraded the suspects at the Police ‘B’ Division, Asaba, weekend, said: “We are taking the fight to their (criminal) hideouts, so there is no hiding place for criminal elements. Wherever they are we will smoke them out.”

She said the suspects (names withheld) were arrested following a distress call by a resident at Oduke, outskirts of Asaba, who was attacked at night and N72,000 cash stolen from him.

“Following the distress call, a police team was drafted to the area from B Division Asaba and on sighting the police, the robbers fired at them and there was a gun battle in which two of the robbers were brought down while some of them escaped,” the PPRO said.

She added that the father of the suspected three robbers was harbouring the criminal gang in his uncompleted building .
