Police Sergeant And Bank Official Arrested For Bank Robbery

The Rivers State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of one Sergeant Promise Ukwuoma and an employee of Access Bank, Rumuolumeni Branch, Samuel Ndudiri, identified as members of a criminal gang who attempted to rob the bank.…



The policeman and the bank worker were said to have been apprehended after a discreet investigation by operatives of the Intelligence Response Team with assistance from the Technical Intelligence Unit of the Nigeria Police.


According to an online statement, which was confirmed by the State Police Public Relations Officers, Mr. Nnamdi Omoni, the duo, were arrested at about 11.35 hours on Friday.

It will be recalled that operatives of the Command on Thursday foiled what would have been a major bank robbery in the state and arrested three suspects.



The three suspects and others on the run had brought a filled gas cylinder to the Access Bank premises in Rumuolumeni and had engaged in cutting the main door leading to the bank when security operatives stormed the place.

However, some members of the gang, including a police corporal, Gabriel Igwe, of the 19 Police Mobile Force, are currently on the run, while two AK 47 rifles belonging to the serving police personnel were recovered during Friday’soperation.

Ndudiri, the Access Bank employee, was said to have masterminded the failed robbery of the bank with the assistance of the police sergeant, who is from the Department of Operations, Port Harcourt.

“Arrest of a serving Police Sergeant and bank staff involved in bank robbery and recovery of two AK47 rifles belonging to serving personnel on 23/12/2016 at about 1135hrs.

“Sequel to the arrest and handing over of three suspects involved in Access Bank, Eagle Cement Rumuelumeni branch robbery to Intelligence Response Team by CP, Rivers State, for discreet investigation, IRT operatives immediately commenced investigation and with technical assistance from TIU (Technical Intelligence Unit), two key members of the gang were arrested.

“Sergeant Promise Ukwuoma of DOPS Port Harcourt and Mr. Samuel Ndudiri ‘m’, 38 years, a staff of Access Bank, Eagle Cement (Rumuolumeni) branch, who brought the job and masterminded the robbery were both arrested in Port Harcourt.

“Exhibits recovered are two AK47 Rifles with breach Nos. 523513 / 21173 and two AK47 rifle magazines fully loaded. One Cpl. Igwe Gabriel of 19PMF attached to RRT DOPS, now at large, is the owner of the second rifle with S/No. 21173,” the statement read.

Igwe, according to the statement, left the rifle at his beat and escaped when he got information that his gang member, Sergeant Promise Ukwuoma, had been arrested.

The arrested suspects were said to have confessed to the crime, even as the police maintained that efforts were in top gear to ensure the arrest of the fleeing members of the gang.

When contacted, the State Police Public Relations Officer confirmed the arrest of the police sergeant and the Access Bank worker, but insisted that he would not make further comment until he got an approval to do so.

“I can confirm to you that the IGP Intelligence Response Team arrested the sergeant and the bank staff, but I cannot say anything further until we get an official approval to do so,” Omoni stressed.

Good job from the police force. There are still few good police officers but the bad guys are on the multitude.

This Ndudiri guy resembles one guy here in Lagos. Same surname too. Maybe they are related. Same shape of head though.
