Delta CP Accuses Militias of Retaining Arms Used in Warri War

Delta State Commissioner of Police, Mr Ikechukwu Aduba

Delta State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ikechukwu Ayodele Aduba says guns used by ethnic militias during the Warri fratricidal war are still in the hands of the ethnic militias, accusing them of submitting guns without triggers.
The CP made the declaration at a media chat tagged “Delta NUJ Showtime” organized by Delta State Council of Nigerian Union of Journalists at Asaba, Delta State.
He declared, “the guns used by militias are still there. The ones they submitted during the amnesty offer by late President Musa Yar’Adua are without triggers.”

Mr. Aduba who decried what he described as arms build-up in the state, charged parents to tame their children against get rich quick syndrome. He blamed the rising crime rate in the state on the get rich quick syndrome.
The State Police boss said that the command needs new operational vehicles, armoured personnel carriers, bullet proofs, patrol allowance and other security gadgets to curb crime in the state.
Mr. Aduba who disclosed that there is synergy between the police and the Nigerian Army, the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps and the State Security Service called on multinationals and private entities to assist the police by setting up security trust funds in the state.
The CP who described corruption as old as grey hair also accused Christian clerics of being corrupt. He denied allegations that he was sitting on 25 million naira monthly security votes in the state, adding that the 25 million naira will not be able to pay the salaries of more than 2,000 Officers under his command.
He also appealed to Deltans to support the police in the fight against crime in the state.
