DSP Toochulwu Ikenga, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Command said asked the driver of the suspected cargo to explain the source of the item but he could not but instead offered her a bribe to allow him to pass.
Oyor refused to be induced but instead informed her DPO Superintendent Joy Chidinma Ikpeama who led some personnel to the scene and arrested the suspect.
“The cable was impounded and taken to the station for investigation.
“At the station the suspect again offered a sum of N500,000 but it was before the DPO briefed the Commissioner of Police on the arrest and recovery,” he said.
