Read full press statement below:
“It has come to our knowledge that some
self centered politicians have perfected
plans to disrupt the relative peace in the
State in order to achieve their selfish
political aggrandizement. Such politicians
use misguided elements otherwise known as
SARA-SUKA who usually under the influence
of hard drugs supplied by their sponsors use
offensive weapons such as machetes,
knives, cutlasses etc to intimidate, assault,
maim and even kill their perceived rivals
including innocent citizens in the state.
The miscreants also engaged in other forms
of criminal activities such as Abduction,
Rape, Extortion and House Breaking among
others thereby causing serious security
threats in the State.
Worried by these emergent trends of
thuggery and other nefarious activities, the
Command has reviewed its crime prevention
strategies and embarked on intensive patrol,
vigorous raid of black spots, flash points
and other criminal hideouts in order to nip
in the bud all forms of thuggery, crime and
criminality.
These strategies started yielding positive
results as during the week under review the
command has arrested over One Hundred
and Fifty (150) Suspected thugs alias
SARA-SUKA from various black spots within
the State and recovered the following
exhibits:
knives
Machetes
Shisha pots
Packets of Tramadol tablets and other
assorted drugs suspected to be hard drugs.
7 packet of vulcanizing solutions
34 Wraps of dried leaves suspected to be
Indian hemp
Six motorcycles suspected to be stolen
Traditional rulers, District Heads, Religious
leaders, parent and Ward Heads are strongly
enjoined to counsel their subjects,
adherents, children and wards to refrain
from any action or activities that will go
contrary to the tanets of our criminal laws
as the Command is determined to fully
enforce the law prohibiting thugs and
thuggery duly signed by the then Executive
Governor in April, 2008.
Meanwhile, the Command is determined to
ensure that criminals have no hiding place
in the State. It must be emphasized here
that safety and security is not the sole
responsibility of security agencies alone,
hence members of the public must play a
vital role towards ensuring peace by availing
the Police with useful information that will
be instrumental to the unbundling of
criminal acts and tendencies.
Members of the public are hereby enjoined
to be law abiding and refrain from acts
capable of causing a breach to public peace
while endeavouring to report any suspicious
movement of persons within their
neighborhood through the following police
emergency number 08151849417. This
would enable the command serve you
better.
Finally, the Command further assured
citizens of its readiness to provide safety
and security in the State.”
