Musa said the person arrested was an unarmed “miscreant who was probably running away from justice scaled the fence and jumped into the family house of the Deputy Governor and was promptly arrested by a policeman on guard.”

The deputy governor’s spokesman disclosed that the house is not that of Shaibu but of his extended family located directly opposite his country home in Jattu, Etsako West LG of the State.

The arrested man identified as Victor was handed over to the police after which he named other members of his gang.

Musa said Victor had led the police to their hideout where police arrested three other members of the gang with short guns, cutlasses, packs of weeds suspected to be Indian hemp and other dangerous weapons.

One of them, he said managed to escape but the police are in search for him.

Musa disclosed that the immediate family members of the deputy governor were already in Benin City as against the report that the family members were in the house in Jattu.
