Tonyon received a distress call from a good Samaritan that one prominent chief is trying to sell two transformers at Ekeki Yenagoa, the Commissioner alerted the members of the police force whose quick intervention foiled the illegal sale. When the chief was caught in the act the buyer and the driver absconded leaving their truck behind," the statement read.
