Kaduna  -  The Kaduna State Police Command, on Monday said it had arraigned 115 street gang members, locally known as “Yan Sara-Suka” for allegedly terrorising communities in the state.

The command’s spokesman, DSP Zubairu Abubakar said in Kaduna that the arraignment followed massive raid of the gangs’ hideouts across the state.

He said that the arrest of the suspects was facilitated by the cooperation of communities, especially in areas such as Rigasa in Kaduna metropolis.

The police spokesman said special patrols were continuing in areas notorious for criminal activities in the state.

“Kaduna is now very calm, and we need the cooperation of the general public to make the state safer for all.

“The police will not allow any miscreant to cause unrest in the society. Such person will be arrested and prosecuted instantly.”

Abubakar appealed to the general public to be law abiding and continue to support the police and other security agencies to discharge their duties more effectively.
