Wukari crisis: Police charge 53

23 March 2013, 15:08

Jalingo - The police in Taraba said that 53 people have been charged to court over the recent Wukari crisis.

Jubril Adeniji, the Commissioner of Police, told the media in Jalingo on Saturday that 125 people were arrested by the command, but 72 were freed after investigations.  

"We arrested 125 persons in connection with the crisis; 72 were freed after investigations and 53 were charged to court,’’ he said.

The commissioner, however, said normalcy had since been restored to the area.

A crisis broke out in Wukari in February where many lives and property were lost.

Adeniji warned that the police would not tolerate activities of miscreants in the state.
