The Delta Police Command has issued a security alert on the activities of a criminal syndicate led by a lady and a man on clutches.
Celestina Kalu, spokesman of the command, said in a statement released on Tuesday in Asaba that the syndicate specialises in robbing commuter buses on the highways.
Kalu said that police investigation revealed that the syndicate had in July 2015 chattered a bus driver from Ilorin to Agbor and robbed the driver of his vehicle.The same syndicate last Thursday in Effurun, near Warri, chattered a bus to Igbodo to ferry some pastors back to Effurun, where other members of the gang waylaid and attacked the driver.

“On March 3, 2016, the same lady came to Agowin International Transport Company, along PTI road in Effurun, to request for a bus to pick some pastors from Igbodo back to Effurun,” he said.

“On reaching Igbodo, the lady asked the driver to go to Umunede that she wants to pick another person there, but on getting to Umunede, the driver was attacked and beaten up by members of the gang who had laid ambush.

“The modus operandi of the syndicate is to chatter commuter buses in any part of the region under the guise of coming to Agbor in Delta state to pack their belongings, only to end up robbing the unsuspecting driver/passengers.”

The police advised transport companies, especially those operating in the South-South, South-East and South-West, to be vigilant of the syndicate, which is led by a lady and a man on clutches.

It urged members of the public “to be on the watch out of these criminal elements and similar criminal syndicate, and report them to the nearest police station or security agency, if seen.”
