Five suspects caught for invasion of Dickson’s house

Five persons have been arrested for their alleged involvement in last month’s invasion of the Toru-Orua, Sagbama country home of former Governor Seriake Dickson.




A police inspector was killed in the attack. Bayelsa State Commissioner of Police Mike Okoli stated this on Monday when he paraded 45 suspects for robbery, rape and murder.

Okoli said though crime and criminality could not be totally eradicated, the police were on top of their game to check and arrest perpetrators.

A 41-year-old man from Ekeremor, who works in the Ministry of Education, was also paraded for allegedly raping of a 25-year-old virgin.

The police boss said the five suspects who invaded Dickson’s home were arrested following intelligence gathering and discreet investigations.

The suspects confessed to planning the invasion but said they were not part of the attack.

He stated: “We will arraign them and allow the court determine their fate. They are also expected to tell the court who carried out the invasion that led to the inspector’s death.”
