Suspected men of the underworld had allegedly overran the Delta State government house in Asaba while the Governor slept and held his family captive in the guest room.
This was revealed in an exclusive report obtained from secrets reporters who were briefed by government officials privy to the robbery.
According to the report, the robbery occurred on the 28th of May, 2020 and the robbers gained access to the government house without resistance through a window of one of the guest rooms.
28th May 2020 will forever remain a bad memory in the heart of Delta State Governor, Mr Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa, as a moment he fell short of security glory, for right under his reign, the numerous security details spread all over the State Government House were broken down without resistance and trace by men of the underground world. This SecretReporters can exclusively report.
While Okowa slept that night and security men patrol the Dennis Osadebey house where destinies of men are decided, armed robbers which other sources claimed to be hired assassins were having a field day with the Governor’s family under lock in the guest house section.
According to insiders within the government house, the heavily armed men did not break through the wall of government house to gain entrance to place but were able to access the guest house section by breaking through the window where they had a field day. With this robbery right inside government house, some security experts who confided in us blamed it on the new Chief Security Officer, Mr Efeizomor, who is clannish by removing competence for tribalism, posting out security officials and bringing in mainly Delta North officers to work with him.
We gathered that he is not liked by those working with him and daily pray for his removal by the Governor, who does not have the courage to do so, as they are both from the same Ika clan and the CSO a son to the King. SecretReporters has gathered that Gov. Okowa has spent so much money on security in the State, yet the most secured place in the state was brazenly robbed at night. He will be the first Governor in Delta State history to preside when armed robbers invaded the government house.
Government House officials have been ordered to keep the robbery top secret while an investigation is carried out, as making it public will bring embarrassment to the governor.
