The Ekpan Police Divisional Headquarters in Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State has recovered the sum of Two-Hundred Thousand Naira from a mentally challenged woman, Miss Regina Micah, DAILY POST reports.

It was learnt that the Police has also handed the said amount to her family.

 

Our correspondent reports that the Police led by the Divisional Police Officer, SP Ibok Asanaenyi acted on a tip-off that the woman was having a huge amount of money in her possession and that some hoodlums were trying to snatch it from her.

The DPO mobilized his men with the pragmatic Divisional Crime Officer, DSP Lawrence Ogoke to the scene and the woman was quickly taken to their custody.

After a thorough and rigorous investigation, the Police were able to locate the relatives of the woman at Kiagbodo community, the hometown of Chief Edwin Kiagbodo Clark in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State.

 

The DPO strictly instructed that the money should be deposited into an account for the woman by the family for her upkeep just as he promised to always monitor it to ensure it is judiciously and prudently used for her.

The elder brother to the challenged woman, Mr. Tony Micah confirmed the report in a chat with Our Correspondent today.

Tony who noted that his sister, Regina has been insane for over twenty years, pointed out that she normally engages herself in petty business at their village market.

 

He said though they were not unaware that she is having some money, he stressed that they never knew that the money in her possession was that huge.

Tony said they had looked for their sister for some time until the Police informed the family that she(Regina) was in their custody.

Tony thanked the Ekpan Divisional Police Officer, SP Ibok Asanaenyi for a good job, saying, he has painted another picture of the Nigeria Police from the one he used to know.
