Story by Ovie smith yenagoa

The Operatives of the State Intelligence Bureau of Bayelsa State Police Command, have busted a gang of criminals who specialize in stealing mobile phones inside a Tricycle.

The Suspects, Daniel Patrick Oyinmi Gideon, Abdulmalik Sa’adu Ebenezer Samuel, David Ebikabowei and John Okon, were arrested at different locations within Yenagoa Metropolis, after sustained surveillance by Police Operatives.

The suspects’ Modus operandi is to drive in pairs, one claiming to be a driver and the other a passenger, when they pick a genuine passenger, the driver distracts the unsuspecting passenger by haggling over transport fares, the other partner then steals the phone from the unsuspecting passenger.

Consequently, they would sell the stolen phones to one Abubakar Mallam, AKA Danmallam, Ibrahim Ahmed and Iliya Isiaka at a give away price.

While the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Tolani Alausa called on the public whose phones were stolen recently, to contact the Police Public Relations Officer for possible identification and recovery.

The suspects are cooperating with the Police in their Investigation.
