The frequent reports of the armed gang who claim to be from Bayelsa State Envronmental Authourity had compelled the agency to disown the group and stated that it had no task force.

The team arrested Headman Eniyi and Ebi Tonbofa and recovered a revolver pistol with three rounds of live ammunition, while two other members of the gang escaped.
