Hoodlums Burglarize Sports Council

Two suspected hoodlums are now telling the police how they broke and entered offices of the Rivers State Sports Council last Tuesday night.

The suspects, names withheld, aged 16 and 18 were caught after they buggled the office of some management staff of the council among others.

Our correspondent gathered that the miscreants gained entrance to the offices with a master key and ransacked the drawers.

According to an eye witness, they had already succeeded in their operation as they gathered monies, jewelries and other valuables at a particular area and were still carrying on their nefarious activities in other offices before luck ran out of them.

It was learnt that one of the council drivers heard strange sound in the office and raised alarm which attracted some athletes residing in the council and the public to make move to apprehend them.

The eye-witness further said it was a mild drama as the suspects tried to escape through the ceiling but luck ran out on them as they were apprehended and handed over to the law enforcement agents.

Confirming the incident, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Council, Chief Christopher Chioma said the suspects are with the police while investigation is on-going.

Chief Chioma added that victims of the robbery are counting their losses as money, jewelries and other valuables were reportedly missing.
