Police threaten to arrest abettors in Kaduna
Kaduna State Commissioner of Police, Ahmad Abdulrahman, says the command is on the trail of security operatives, local chiefs and vigilantes suspected to be conniving with criminals in the state.
Abdulrahman told journalists yesterday in Kaduna that the command was determined to tackle all forms of criminality in the state.
He appealed to residents to give the police and other security agencies relevant information to stop the criminals.
“Information reaching me is that some security agents are also behind some of these criminals. But I wish it is not true, because whoever they are, whatever organisation, I don’t care. My mandate is to hunt down criminals.
“We will arrest those who are aiding and abetting criminals’ informants. We have put our searchlight on them.
“Those traditional leaders, local hunters and vigilantes should be very careful, because we have information that some of them have turned into informants to criminals.”
“We are going to get them arrested and prosecuted. No criminal will go scot-free. Any personnel of the security services who is involved, we are going to get them,” he said.
The CP also confirmed the death of a road marshal shot by gunmen, and a commuter who was injured at Kasarami village on Kaduna-Abuja highway on Tuesday.
He added that the commuter was responding to treatment in a hospital.
“All criminals will be flushed out from their hideouts. They are human beings, not from another planet.
“If they don’t have informants, people aiding and abetting them, and those supplying them with fuel, food and medicine, definitely they will not be able to operate.
“We, therefore, appeal to the good citizens of the state, including those living or going through forests, to be alive to their civic responsibilities by assisting the police and other security agencies with information to track and arrest the criminals,” the police chief said.
