09 December 2013, 18:36

Kaduna - The Kaduna State Police Command says it has arrested 40 suspects and recovered eight cars and several ammunition from them in a raid by the command's officers and men.

The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Aminu Lawan, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Kaduna that the high rate of car theft necessitated the need to comb some ''black spots'' notorious for car snatching.

''There was what we call strategic plan that the command put in place to ensure combing of some black spots that had been identified in the command.

''Such operation yielded positive result of which quite a number of suspects were arrested and a lot of recoveries made.

''Some stolen vehicles were recovered; about eight and a lot of guns, both automatic and locally made guns, and some other exhibits too.

''Not less than 40 suspects were arrested and they were all screened and charged to various courts and some of them are still undergoing trials and some have gotten convictions.''

He assured the public of the command’s resolve to end car theft, adding that more strategies were in place to stamp out various criminal activities in the state.

''The police are doing everything possible to ensure that people sleep with their two eyes closed.

''We will continue to appeal to the good people of Kaduna state to continue to partner with the police in their various localities and continue to volunteer to give useful information to security agencies,'' he said.

The PPRO also guaranteed confidentiality and security of any person that would volunteer useful information on reduction of criminality in the state.
