In a renewed war against criminal activities, Police detectives in Asaba, Delta State, have uncovered a warehouse operated by kidnappers and native doctors in Okwe community near Asaba, recovering 16 human skulls and pots of concoction in the raid.
ASP Lucky Uyabeme, Police spokesman in the state, confirmed that the detectives acted on a tip-off after rescuing a 60-year-old mother of four from a four-man kidnap gang on her way from Onitsha to Asaba. He said that the warehouse located inside a thick forest in the community, stinks.
According to him, “the detectives, on getting there, found nobody but recovered items used by the kidnappers including foams of different kinds used by their victims,” adding that “the detectives, on their way out of the bush, arrested a middle-aged man who claimed to be a farmer and who is currently helping the Police for further investigation.
A victim of the kidnappers, Mrs Ojukwu, said she was standing along the Onitsha/Owerri Road waiting for a taxi to Asaba when a car operated by the gang stopped to forcibly take her into the bush where she stayed for days before being rescued.
