​3 policemen dismissed for robbing petroltanker in Delta

The Commissioner of Police in Delta, Mr
Zanna Ibrahim, said three police officers had

been dismissed from service for hijacking a

petroleum tanker in the state.

Ibrahim said the dismissed policemen were

also being prosecuted.
He disclosed this in Asaba while presenting to

newsmen the culprits alongside 21 other

suspects who committed various crimes

ranging from kidnapping, armed robbery, car

snatching, cultism and murder.

He said that the dismissed policemen had

served in three different places in Edo, Delta

and Imo, and had connived with two civilians.

The commissioner said that the two civilians

had earlier been arrested, tried and sentenced

to prison.

He said that the five-man gang confiscated

the petroleum tanker which was carrying

about 33, 000,000 liters of petrol along

Agbor/Benin Expressway, tied up the driver

and the conductor and took away the tanker,

but that luck ran out of them.

He gave the names of the dismissed

policemen as: Sgt. Christopher Onyegho (Ex-

F/No.375631), Sgt. Nwakem Enonzim (Ex-F/

No.413318) and Sgt. Michael Chimaera (Ex-F/

No.441254).

“During my last briefing I informed you about

the three serving policemen who were involved

in robbing a Petroleum Tanker, and were

undergoing department disciplinary measures.

“The department proceeding has been

completed and the policemen have been

dismissed and arraigned in court for

prosecution,” Ibrahim said.

He also said that the command had recovered

several locally made guns, ammunition, a

Sienna bus, and some cash from the 21 other

suspects, adding that the culprits would be

charged to court on conclusion of

investigation.
