On March 5, 2024, the relentless efforts of the command led to the arrest of two male suspects, Peter Idogor and Emmanuel Sunday, both residents of Evwreni Community in Ughelli South. These suspects were linked to the abduction, and one of the victims positively identified them. The command continues its pursuit of the remaining gang members involved in the crime.

2. Arrest of Suspected Cultists/Armed Robbers and Weapon Recovery: On March 6, 2024, the CP – DECOY Squad, acting on credible intelligence regarding cultist activities, raided a hotel near Federal College Junction, Asaba.
