Two suspected pirates allegedly caught with four AK 47 rifles along the waterways of Sagbama in Bayelsa State have disappeared from the custody of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the state police command.
They were said to have disappeared when their family members went to asked for them at the police station only to be told that they were no longer in the custody of the police.
A family source said that the men were indeed members of a vigilante and anti-piracy group operating at the Sagbama axis when they were arrested by security operatives.
At the time of their arrest, the suspects were said to have hidden their rifles inside a drum of diesel.
However, the arrest and detention of the suspects took a new turn when efforts by their family members to reach them failed.
Some operatives of SARS claimed that their whereabouts were unknown.
When contacted on the development, the spokesperson of the police, Mr. Alex Akhigbe, denied knowledge of the disappearance of the suspects, saying, “I am not aware.”
In another development, the General Overseer of Divine Winners Ministry International, Bayelsa State, Confidence Ozor, who was kidnapped last Thursday in Owerri, Imo State, while attending a crusade, has been released by abductors.
Ozor regained his freedom last Tuesday after spending five days in the hands of the kidnappers who confessed to him that they were hired to kill him due to his overwhelming and spiritual powers, which has made him to win so much members within a short period of his stay in Bayelsa State.
He was released after paying the sum N5 million as ransom to the kidnappers.
Narrating his ordeal, the Anambra State-born pastor, who is known for his prophetic and deliverance prowess, said he would still consult his God before he would be able to understand the whole scenario, saying, “People don’t like success.”
On how he knew they were sent to kill him, the pastor said: “They said we have been monitoring you, they said something as if pastors are behind it. They also said you the only pastor in Bayelsa State you are already known everywhere for these little time you have spent in the state.
“When I tried to tell them that I am a pastor, and I don’t deserve the kind of treatment, received, they said order has been given to them from above and that they are boys to the high authority and the order was to kill and not to negotiate any ransom but one of them noticed that we are from the same place and took it upon himself to spare me, telling me he would make sure am not killed as earlier planned.”
The prophet who is called the T.B Joshua of Bayelsa by his members, said it was at that point that they asked him to contact somebody to bring N50 million, with stern warning not to involve the police, but they later brought it down to N5 million after much negotiation with my people.”
