A 33-year-old Nigerian national identified as Lebechi Charles Kelechi has been arrested in connection with a drug trafficking case in Cambodia.

According to local media, on October 9 at 8:30 p.m, the specialized force from the Anti-Drug force, led by the Deputy Director of the Department, Lt. Col. Vor Vuthea, and with the coordination of the Deputy Prosecutor of the Phnom Penh Municipal Court, Sith Vann investigated and cracked down on a drug trafficking case.

Kelechi held a passport with the number A08315794. Police reported that he also had a false occupation.

The suspect and the drugs were taken by the police. He will be sent for legal processing and the drugs were kept as evidence.

In another report, the Ondo State Police Command on Tuesday confirmed the arrest of a man who allegedly opened gunfire to disperse guests at a party at Oba Akoko in the Akoko South West Local Government Area of the state.

PUNCH reported that as the party was ongoing last Saturday, the suspect, whose identity was not revealed, stormed the venue and shot to disperse the guests when he saw his girlfriend with another man.

Though no life was lost in the incident, many of the guests were said to have sustained injuries as they ran helter-skelter in the confusion that followed the shooting.

A source, who identified the suspect as a security man, explained that he traced his girlfriend to the party after suspecting that she was with another man.

The source said, “The suspect is a security man, but we don’t know the organisation he works for because he was not on uniform. He traced his girlfriend, who was with another man, to the party. I think it was out of anger that he brought out his gun and started shooting

when he saw the lady with another man. The shooting sent all the guests away, including his girlfriend, and the party ended abruptly.”

While some residents claimed that the suspect was a member of the Ondo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun Corps, others said he was a police officer.

The state Commander of the Amotekun Corps, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, said the suspect was not a member of his team.

He said, “I am not aware of the incident and I don’t have any report of such from the Akoko area. The suspect is not one of us; you know there are many security agencies, but I am sure he is not one of my men.”

A police source said the case had been transferred to the police headquarters, Akure, for further investigation.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed the arrest, adding that investigation was ongoing. While also denying that the suspect was a policeman, she refused to confirm his identity.
