It is understood that Ojeh was flagged for exhibiting suspicious behaviour when the commercial bus he boarded was stopped at a military checkpoint.

Though the suspect claimed to be a Police Sergeant serving with the Police Unit of Special Weapon Tactical Team (SWAT), from the Mobile Police Force 19-unit, Rivers State, he couldn’t explain the weapons discovered in his possession or his mission in Borno.

“After searching his bags, about 220 quantity rounds of 7.62mm Special, 1× hand grenade, a dagger and other items were discovered.

“During interrogation by the troops, Ojeh claimed he a was personnel of the Police Unit of Special Weapon Tactical Team (SWAT), from the Mobile Police Force 19-unit, River State.
