The Delta Police Command has confirmed the seizure of three trucks, purportedly loaded with items suspected to be stolen or vandalised from the moribund Delta Steel Company (DSC), Aladja.

Agency report says Mr. Hafiz Inuwa, Delta State Commissioner of Police (CP) confirmed the development to newsmen when contacted on Saturday.

“Actually, we got information that some suspected trucks were moving out of Aladja area with items suspected to have been vandalised from the moribund DSC.

“As a result, I quickly got in touch with the Commander, Operation Safe Delta, who consequently swung into action with his men and intercepted the three trucks.

“The three trucks are now at Ovwian/Aladja Division for safe keeping while the three drivers were apprehended and being interrogated,” Inuwa said.

The said items were suspected to have been stolen from the premises of the dilapidated Delta Steel Company (DSC) now Premium Mines and Steel Limited.

The source further states that the Police arrested the drivers of the trucks Friday night, following the alarm raised by members of the Ovwian/Aladja community.

The youths, who stopped the trucks and the drivers, instantly alerted the Police, who quickly intercepted the trucks and caught the drivers.
