Kaduna - The Kaduna State Police Command on Saturday warned that it would deal with those taking the law into their hands.

The warning is contained in a statement issued by the Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Aliyu Usman, in Kaduna.

The statement said the command observed that some members of the public had become lawless and acted in manners detrimental to law and order and in total disregard to rights of other citizens.

The Commissioner of Police, Sanusi Lemu, said the maintenance of law and order would not be compromised and anybody found committing acts detrimental to the peace of the society would face the music.

"The public are also warned to desist from taking laws into their hands as any attempt to commit unruly behaviours would be visited with the full wrath of the law."
