Bayelsa State Special Security Task Force, codenamed Operation Doo Akpor, has arrested two persons for the attack on a 26-year-old corps member, Miss Folakemi Akinbode.
Akinbode’s limb was reportedly chopped off after being attacked by the suspected hoodlums on Tuesday while returning from her place of primary assignment.
The suspects have been identified as Weri Malua and Ebi West Jato.
The suspects were said to have visited Niger Delta Teaching Hospital, Okolobiri, where Akinbode is observing her primary assignment, earlier in the day to donate blood.
After being attended to by the victim, they were paid an undisclosed amount by the Hospital Management through Akinbode.
After effecting the payment, the suspects reportedly waylaid the corps member and attacked her with machete and cudgels.
The Special Adviser to Governor Seriake Dickson on Security matters, Col Bernard Kenebai, (retd.), told journalists on Thursday that the security operatives acted on a tip-off and this led to the arrest of Malua and Jato.
According to him, the Special Task Force, around 1.30pm, received a call at the State Government’s Security Coordination Centre, which eventually led to the arrest of the two in Gbarain, Yenagoa Local Government Area of the state.
