A 77-year old welder, Michael Enipozi has been arrested by operatives of the Delta State Police Command for allegedly supplying criminals with guns to carry out their nefarious activities.
The septuagenarian was traced to his village, Irri in Isoko South Local Government Area of the state following the confession of an earlier arrested armed robbery suspect, 28-year old Emma Ighodalo.
Ighodalo who was nabbed with two live cartridges had told interrogators that his operating gun which he threw into the bush while being chased by the police, was sold to him by Pa. Enipozi for N30,000.00. Confirming the arrest in Asaba on Sunday, Public Relations Officer of the command, DSP Bright Edafe, said upon arrest, three double-barrel guns, two single barrel guns and other tools used in producing guns were recovered from Enipozi.
