Disabled man coordinating criminal activities nabbed with charms, bullet proof vests in Benue


The Benue State Police Command on Monday paraded a disabled man, Sylvanus Ukpan, who was arrested for allegedly ‘coordinating’ criminal activities in the state and environs.
Ukpan was nabbed by the police in Katsina-Ala Local Government Area of the state while acting on an information that he was allegedly supplying charms and locally-made bullet proof vests to criminals in the state and neighbouring Cross River State.

The CP who was represented by the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mose Yamu, said the suspect, who was in company of another, was heading towards Wukari in Taraba State when they were arrested.
He said: “He was caught yesterday night with charms and seven locally-made bullet proof vests, which was meant to be supplied to a yet to be disclosed gang.
“We have already established that they were coming from Otukwuunya in Obudu Local Government Area of Cross River State, when they were nabbed at Ayua, between Katsina-Ala and Wukari.
“Our investigations also revealed that each of the vest is worth over N250, 000.
“But investigation into the matter is still ongoing,” he added.
On his part, the 35-year-old suspect said the charms were not meant for criminals.
“I was about to do that when the police arrested me,” he added.
