NSCDS cautions passengers on robbers using commercial vehicles in Kaduna

25 February 2015, 18:00

Kaduna - The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) on Wednesday alerted passengers of commercial vehicles in Kaduna to be wary of armed robbers posing as drivers.

The warning was contained in a statement signed by the Kaduna State NSCDC Commandant, Alhaji Zakari Ningi.

It said the operators of the vehicles took advantage of passengers and ended up robbing them at vulnerable spots.

"The operators of painted commercial buses in the metropolis carry unsuspecting passengers but end up robbing them on board," Ningi said.

He said the command had received complaints from victims of such robberies, and advised passengers to be extra careful while boarding commercial vehicles, especially within Kaduna metropolis. He said the command had since commenced investigation into the matter after it received "two reports of persons who have been robbed in such manner".

The commandant urged the general public to assist the NSDC with useful information to track down and apprehend the perpetrators.
