Mopol 43, Bauchi State but was in Delta State
on a special duty. We came to Lagos on the
invitation of one of our members, who gave us
detail of a Chinese national who resides in
Shomolu.

victim or victims, we stormed his house with a
forged search warrant, alleging that he was into
drug trafficking and arms racketeering.” He

comb the victim’s home with particular interest
in valuables and cash.
