15 November 2015, 18:02

Maiduguri - The Police Command in Borno said on Sunday that it had in its renewed efforts towards crime control, arrested 101 suspects in connection with various criminal activities in the state.

Spokesman of the command, Isuku Victor, made this known in a statement in Maiduguri.

Victor said that the arrests were outcome of intensive patrols by the command to enhance policing in the state, adding that it would continue as the Christmas approached.

He noted that due to ongoing military offensive against terrorists in their strongholds, criminals had started relocating, seeking new abodes around the state, but assured that the command would wage war against them.
