The Borno State Police Command on Wednesday has paraded 76 individuals accused of armed robbery, kidnapping, theft, and other crimes.
Three suspects in the assassination of a Model Public School Head Teacher, Late Abubakar Ahmed, in Maiduguri’s Bulumkutu community a few days ago were also paraded.
This was revealed by the Commissioner of Police, Umar Abdu, at a press conference at the Maiduguri Police Headquarters.
Other suspects were involved in vandalism of electrical wires, boreholes, and appliances, as well as the use of phony license plates, operating outside curfew hours, and wearing tinted glasses without permission, according to him.
The suspects were apprehended in various locations throughout the capital, as well as other sections of the Jere, Konduga, and Mafa local government regions, according to him.
To combat all criminal actions in the state, the command is working hard to implement the Inspector General of Police, Alkali Usman’s modernized policing.
“We called to inform you that the Borno State Police Command has detained 76 people for armed robbery, abduction, theft, and other crimes,” the statement reads.
“Three people were also arrested in connection with the assassination of a Model Public School Head Teacher, Late Abubakar Ahmed, in Maiduguri’s Bulumkutu neighborhood a few days ago.”
“Other suspects were involved in the vandalism of electrical wires, boreholes, and appliances, the use of forged license plate numbers, operating outside curfew hours, and the illegal use of tinted glasses.”
“I assured members of the public that the command is working diligently to implement the Inspector General of Police, Alkali Usman’s revolutionized policing to combat all criminal actions in the state.” According to the CP.
He did, however, say that all of the suspects would be charged in court to determine the severity of their crimes and take appropriate action, while also urging the general public to continue to give the police and other security agencies their full support and cooperation in order to stem the tide of criminal activity in the state.
