The said incident allegedly occurred at the Legislative Quarters along Okpanam road, Asaba.
The suspects, Sule Ahmed and Tagboe Peter Celestine, were reported to have been apprehended by eagle-eyed police detectives who were dispatched by the Police High Command to bring the culprits to book.
According to a Press Release made available to Journalists by the State Command, it was disclosed that On 18/10/2017, one Tagboe Peter Celestine, a Beninose, and cook to Hon. Nwaka, broke into her safe and carted away a huge sum of money, including jewelries and other valuables.
