Operatives of the Kaduna State Police Command have apprehended 25 members of a gang known as ‘sara suka’ terrorising communities across the state.

Out of the 25 suspects arrested, 16 of them were picked up by operatives within the Rigasa axis in possession of weapons and charged with thuggery.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mansir Hassan, disclosed this in a statement released in Kaduna as the command unveiled a new outfit-Anti Vice Unit.

Hassan explained that owing to an upsurge in thuggery, phone and female handbag snatching and drug-related offences among youths in the state, the state Commissioner of Police, Audu Dabigi, established the new unit to clamp down on all social vices in the state.

According to him, the new unit will be liaising with all the police divisions to handle all cases of thuggery, phone snatching, drug and illicit substance consumption, and arms possession.

He said, “The unit which is referred to as the Anti Vice Unit has since started operating and will be liaising with all the divisions to diligently handle all cases of thuggery, phone snatching, drug and illicit substances consumption and peddling, possessing weapons.

“Consequently, no fewer than 25 persons have been arrested across the metropolis about the aforesaid offences with 16 among them arrested within Rigasa axis and charged for thuggery (sara-suka) and had weapons.

“The Commissioner of Police thus charged the new outfit to make Kaduna State, especially the metropolis safe for the populace by continuously denying these urchins any operating space. He equally called on parents and guardians to warn their wards to desist from any act of delinquency.”
