The authorities have assured the public that all recovered items are accounted for and will be presented in court when required.

It can be recalled that on the 22nd of March, vigilant operatives of the Nigerian police attached to zone 16 Bayelsa State intercepted a truckload of vandalized electric cables, transformers, and generating sets that were stolen from the syringe factory.

The swift action by the police led to the apprehension of the suspected vandals involved in the heinous act.

Following their arrest, both the suspects and the recovered exhibits were handed over to the anti-cultism unit of the Rivers State Police command for further investigation.

Sensing the gravity of the case, the Rivers State Ministry of Health promptly reached out to the anti-cultism unit to inquire about the status of the stolen items, which were crucial for prosecuting the suspected vandals.

To their surprise, they were informed that the items were allegedly missing.

However, the Commissioner of Police, CP Nwonyi Emeka, addressed journalists in Port Harcourt to clarify the situation and provide reassurance.

He unequivocally stated that no exhibit was missing and that all the recovered items had been securely transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department of the command.

CP Emeka emphasized that the exhibits would be presented in court whenever they are required for the legal proceedings.
