Based on the leads provided by Rakesh @ Rocky, another member of syndicate namely Obumuneme was arrested from his rented house in the morning of 14/05/2022 at instance of Rakesh @ Rocky. Facts of the arrest are that members of the police team knocked the door of the house of Obumuneme, but he did not open it and intentionally made police team to wait.

Incriminating material used in processing/packing of the heroin, electronic weighing scale and other articles used for preparing parcels of heroin were also recovered from the house.
