Security operatives in Benin City, Edo State, have arrested three suspected former militant leaders allegedly in possession of two AK47 riffles.

The trio are in custody at the state’s Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) pending their arraignment tomorrow.‎
Contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Theodore Okafor, said he was yet to be briefed on the development.
However, reports have gone viral on the social media alluding that some suspected militants were arrested in an hotel owned by the Commissioner for Justice, Henry Idahagbon.
Reacting, he said the ‘fabrication’ was to divert attention from the arrest of one their “imported Generals”.
His words: “My attention was drawn through innumerable calls to a mischievous publication on the Facebook page of one Ogbeide Ifaluyi Isibor to the effect that the DSS arrested 61 militants in my motel. Some days ago, the same fellow also caused to be published that I was buying PVCs within the premises of the Ministry of Justice.
“The PDP, having failed woefully to persuade Edo people to return to Egypt, has resorted to spinning false stories and marketing same online. We are daily being assailed by different fabricated stories. If the deputy governor wasn’t engaged in a shouting match with the governor, the Commissioner for Information, Kassim Afegbua, will be endorsing one of their two candidates.”
