Operatives of Operation Puff Adder, Bayelsa State Command have reportedly arrested the ring leader of the cult group who attacked the Lion of Judah Deliverance Church Azikoro, Yenagoa on Wednesday night 5th August, 2020.
The attack on the church and a few residential buildings in Azikoro led to the death of four persons.
The gang leader who was arrested on 6 August, 2020, according to the police, later confessed to the crime and took the Police team to a hideout.
An AK 47 riffle and 10 rounds of Ammunition allegedly used in the operation were recovered in the early hours of Thursday, but the police, however, has not named the suspect.
A statement by the Command's spokesman, SP Asinim Butswat, on Friday notes that the suspect is cooperating with the Police in the investigation.
The statement says the Commissioner of Police,CP Mike Okoli, has deployed additional detectives to fish out the other fleeing gang members.
You would recall that the Bayelsa State Police Command launched manhunt for the suspected cultists immediately after the attack.
The police also named the victims of the deadly attack as Alfred Marcus male 30 years, Imomotimi 25 years, Gabriel Ejimofor male 45 years and Uchechukwu Ejimofor male 38 years.
