Police Arrested Notorious Gunrunner, Accomplice In Bayelsa

Simon Utebor, Yenagoa

The Bayelsa State Police Command says its operatives have arrested a suspected notorious gunrunner, Markus Akassa, and his accomplice, Ekioyoufegha Agge, at a hotel in Akenfa area of Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state.

The command also said it recovered one AK 47 rifle and two Barreta pistols from the suspects.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Bayelsa State Command, Mr. Asinim Butswat, said in a statement on Tuesday that detectives from the Anti-Cultism Unit and the State Intelligence Bureau apprehended the suspects in a coordinated covert operation.

Butswat, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said the detectives lured the 45-year-old Akassa from Ekeremor LGA of Bayelsa under the guise of purchasing arms from him.

He noted that the suspected gunrunner was arrested with Agge, 34, from Oboro town in Delta State, who usually introduced him to buyers.

The police spokesman said, “They were arrested on June 16, 2018, at 1400hours, at a hotel at Akenfa 3, Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

“The arms that were recovered from them are one AK47 riffle and two China-made Barreta pistols.

“The prime suspect confessed that he usually travelled to the Republic of Cameroon to buy arms and ammunition in a community called Okwa, a border town with Bakassi Peninsula.

“He confessed he usually sells an AK 47 riffle for N550,000 and Barrata pistol for N250,000 in Nigeria.”

Butswat said investigation was ongoing to recover some of the guns he earlier sold and arrest the buyers.

He said the arrest was in furtherance of the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris’, directives of mopping-up arms and ammunition from unauthorised persons.

“The command appeals to members of the public to avail the police with useful information that may lead to recovery of arms from unauthoriased persons,” he said.

Amnesty coordinator denies non-payment of school fees MainNews.blog Jun 17, 2018 2:15 AM

Prof. Charles Quaker DokuThe Coordinator, Presidential Amnesty Programme, Prof. Charles Dokubo, has refuted allegations that school fees have not been paid to some beneficiaries.

Fielding questions at the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Forum in Abuja, Dokubo explained that persons alleging they had not been paid either came into the programme through the “back door” or had personally decided to extend their degree programmes.

He said: “There is no other stipend that has not been paid. Anything you hear about, sometimes, it is either people have been misinformed. We have a record in our office on those who are on stipends. Others went into the programme through the back door.

“If I identify those who came in through the back door, most times, I don’t pay them because it is eating deep into the budget. Although sometimes, I have a conscience because I say (to myself that) these people are Niger Deltans, how can we send our children out into the streets?

“But we have to look at ways we can manage it, so it does not eat deep into our budget, and yet manage them because they are from the Niger Delta. Furthermore, there is also that idea that after your first degree, you want to continue to do a Masters’ degree while you were just sent there to do a first degree. You go and register yourself and then go on protesting that the amnesty is not paying your money.

“Everything that those who complain and protest say, we have to take with a bucket of salt, because amnesty cannot send their students and refuse to pay their school fees.”

Dokubo said since he was appointed, he has tried to pay most of the outstanding backlog. He stressed that payment of stipend is an important factor in maintaining peace and security in the region.

The professor noted that people saw the stipend as an entitlement. “If you have been empowered, given a job and been trained, you have to disengage from the programmme. That is what I am trying to do, and I believe I will l do that with the support of the staff I have in my office.”
