A traditional ruler at Sasaro, Akoko-Edo Local Government Area of Edo State has been arrested by the state police Command, following allegations that a police rifle was found in his bedroom.

Leading to the arrest, according to Vanguard, was the drowning of a member of the community, who works in a quarry company owned by some Lebanese in the state. His employers went to the community leaders to report the matter, but youths attacked them and the two police officers in their entourage escaped. They returned with reinforcement to rescue the expatriates. While they were searching for them, they found one of their missing rifles in the traditional ruler’s bedroom.

He was immediately arrested and taken to Igarra Police Station from where he was transferred to the state Police Headquarters, Benin, for further investigation.

A source at the Command confirmed the arrest to Vanguard yesterday. However, police spokesman in the state, Stephen Onwochei, said he had not been briefed on the matter.
