A man identified as Tega Dafe has been arrested by the Delta State Police Command for unlawful possession of arm and ammunition.
The suspect was said to have been arrested by men of the Enerhen Police Division around 9:30 pm, on Monday.
A locally made cut to size gun and three live cartridges were recovered from the suspect.
The suspect reportedly stormed the residence of one Favor Oghenwruemu, threatening to cause harm.
However, he was grabbed from behind by Favour’s mother who hid behind the door and screamed out for help until the arrival of sympathizers and Enerhen Vigilante members.
A source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the suspect had gone to the house to claim his child, who was birthed by Favour.
When contacted, the State Commissioner of Police, Mr Hafiz Inuwa, said the suspect was arrested at Favour’s residence with the gun and ammunition and intent to commit a crime.
He added that “the matter is under investigation.”
