Crime: IGP deploys unit to Arepo, Ibafo


The Acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris, has deployed a tactical operation Unit to flush out vandals and other criminal elements operating in Arepo and Ibafor areas of Ogun State.

The team deployed comprises of the Police Mobile Force, the Counter-Terrorism Unit and a back-up of an Air Surveillance Team.

The Police chief explained that the deployment of the Unit will ensure the return of normalcy to the areas in record time.

This is contained in a statement in Abuja on Friday by the Force Spokesperson, Don Awunah.

The IGP while stating that the Force will not watch any criminal group or groups take laws into their hands, authorized the Unit to deal decisively with anyone who constitutes himself as an enemy of the State.

He also urged citizens of the area to return home and go about their normal businesses.

In another development, the Nigeria Police Force has arrested one Aloysius Ebiniko, said to be the kingpin of the armed gang that abducted and murdered Col. Samaila Inusa in Kaduna State.

The Police explained that the arrest of Ebiniko was made possible following credible technical intelligence employed by the Police after a confessional statement of a member of the gang earlier arrested.

The Police noted that Ebiniko will soon be arraigned in court.
