TWO Chiefs of Okere-Urhobo in Warri Kingdom have been ordered to be arrested by the Warri Magistrate Court I over a case of alleged bribery and evasion of arrest at the B Division of the Nigeria Police, Warri.

This was contained in a warrant order issued for the arrest of Chief John Eravor and Chief Victor Okumagba by Magistrate I. Okonta of Warri Magistrate I on September 30, 2105.

The duo were alleged to have evaded arrest after unsuccessfully trying to bribe the Divisional Police Officer, CSP Eyoh Anietie to secure the bail of Chief Kesiena Okumagba, who was arrested for declaring himself Orosuen of Okere-Urhobo Kingdom on August 15.

Police sources said that Okumagba and Eravor were allegedly involved in the deal to secure the release of Chief Kesiena Okumagba.

In a swift reaction, Okumagba in a telephone conversation, debunked the allegations against him insisting that he had filed a N50million suit against the DPO B Division for alleged unlawful arrest and detention.

According to him, “On August 15, I received a call that my elder brother was arrested, I told Gideon to go and secure his bail that I would be going to Ughelli. While in Ughelli, my younger brother called that Gideon too was arrested.’’
