The young man who is of Ijaw ethnic stock in Ondo State was paraded today in Warri by the Commander of NNS Delta, Commodore Joseph Dzunve.
And according to the Navy Commodore, the young man who is also believed to be a member of the dreaded militant group-Niger Delta Avengers was arrested in Sapele on Tuesday.

When interviewed, the suspect admitted committing some of the crimes he was accused of.
