The suspects were arrested for various offences, including robbery, kidnapping, cultism and illegal possession of arms were paraded by officers of the state command at the force headquarters in Asaba, the Delta State’s capital in south-south Nigeria.

Briefing reporters after the parade on Saturday, the Commissioner of Police, Alkali Usman, reeled out the offences for which the suspects were arrested.
