Though the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, could not be reached at press time, a source at the Ughelli ‘A’ Division confirmed the incident when contacted stating that the Police has since deposited their remains in an undisclosed mortuary in the area.

The source said: “We are yet to ascertain the identity of the victims but witnesses said they are a couple and that the hoodlums fled the scene after shooting them.

“We are not restraining our investigations to armed robbery alone, hence we are investigating other angles to the crime including assassination, but an investigation is ongoing with efforts to arrest the hoodlums in full gear.”
