Kaduna State Police Command has arrested a total of 220 suspected terrorists and armed robbers- including the suspected killer of a Retired Air Force Officer, Air Vice Marshal Maisaka (retd.)
The suspects were paraded by the State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Muhammad Jalige, at the Command Headquarters, on Wednesday.
18 AK47 rifles, 2,000 live ammunition of different caliber, 11 Pump Action Guns, ten locally fabricated Pistols, 140 shotguns, 12-gauge cartridges, seven motor vehicles of different brands, and nine motorcycles were recovered from the suspects between January and March 2022.
According to the Spokesperson, the relatively serene security atmosphere in the State is a result of the strategic and tactical deployment of the special units of the force, undercover operatives, conventional Police personnel as well as the purposeful synergy within its security architecture.
“Let it be on record that the relentless efforts of the Command in investigating the culpable homicide case involving late Air Vice Marshal Mohammed Musa Umar Maisaka of No. A27 Makarfi road Rigasa, Kaduna, assassinated on the 8th November 2021, has yielded a positive result with the arrest of the principal suspect Muhammed Muhammed Giwa.
“The said suspect confessed that he and his cohorts had extorted money, at different times and running into millions of Naira, from the victim on several occasions by threatening to kill him if he fails to meet up with their demands.
“All the suspects are currently in various stages of investigation and will be charged to court soon,” he stated.
