It was later discovered that the cables were stolen, while the suspect was said to have offered police officers another N500,000 bribe at the station to let him go but was refused.

Ikenga’s statement read in part;

“The Commissioner of Police in Anambra State, CP Aderemi Adeoye has awarded a cash sum of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira N250,000 to a Police woman serving in Main Market Division, Onitsha.



“The Policewoman, Inspector Charity Oyor who was on traffic duty in the market on Wednesday, 23rd August, 2023, saw a shuttle bus carrying six heavy bundles of stripped armoured cable suspected to have been stolen driving past.

“She stopped the driver and inquired about the consignment from the purported owner who, rather than explain how he came to be in possession of the cable, offered her a bribe which she rejected.

“The Police Inspector put a call across to her DPO Superintendent Joy Chidinma Ikpeama who led Police Personnel to the scene and arrested the suspect. The cable was impounded and taken to the Station for investigation.

“At the station the suspect again offered a sum of N500,000 to be allowed to go. This was rejected by the officers. The DPO promptly briefed the Commissioner of Police on the arrest and recovery.”

Ikenga said the Commissioner of Police has ordered State CID Awka to take over the case for investigation with a view to unravelling where the used cables came from.
