In a significant breakthrough, the Nigerian Army successfully apprehended individuals responsible for the heinous murder of Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Sunday Okoebor in Asaba, Delta State.

Colonel Ibrahim Gambari, Chief of Staff at the 63 Brigade Headquarters in Asaba, provided details during a press briefing where the suspects were paraded. The arrest followed intelligence received by the military about an impending criminal operation by the gang in the Koka area of the city. In response, the troops swiftly mobilized to the scene.

Colonel Gambari highlighted the collaborative effort with operatives of the Police “Operation Hawk,” as both forces engaged in a fierce exchange of gunfire with the criminals. Tragically, during the confrontation, an individual identified as Aminu fatally shot DSP Sunday Okoebor at close range, leading to his immediate demise.

The operation’s success underscores the commitment of the Nigerian Army and law enforcement agencies in tackling criminal activities and ensuring the safety of citizens.
