Plateau: Two arrested for armed robbery, arms, ammunition re

On Thursday, the Plateau State Police Command announced the arrest of two suspected armed robbers.

It was also disclosed that guns, ammo, and a motorbike were recovered during the aforementioned operation as announced by the Command's Public Relations Officer, DSP Alfred Alabo, in Jos, the State Capital.

He said, “The support and cooperation of members of the public, especially Plateau residents, in providing accurate and timely information to the police on the Plateau, has continued to assist the command to get rid of criminal elements in the state.

“The Commissioner of Police Plateau Command, Hassan Yabanet, expresses gratitude to Plateau residents for their unflinching support, and cooperation, and for sharing in the glory of Plateau State Police Command in the recent arrest of two armed robbery suspects in Mavo Community of Wase LGA part of the State.

“While acting on credible intelligence on April 10, 2024, at 16:30 hours relating to a robbery incident at Angwan Sakuwa-Mavo where a man was robbed of his motorcycle in his residence, police detectives attached to Wase Division of the Command, in collaboration with some local security help groups, swung into action and nabbed Musa Adamu and Sale Joga, both males of Mavo community of Wasa LGA.

“Exhibits recovered from the suspects include one AK-47 rifle with 7.62mm ammunition.

Alabo, however, said the case is still under investigation, and the suspects will be charged in court as soon as the investigation is completed.

“Given the above arrest, the CP sends a stern warning to criminals to repent of their nefarious acts or flee out of the state, as the police will not relent in its aggressive onslaught on criminals in the state,” he warned.

Meanwhile, the Plateau state government has visited displaced communities to conduct an on-the-spot assessment of the areas, through the office of the Taskforce on Resettlement of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) as plans are underway to move them from IDP camps.

Air Commodore Chuwang Pam (Rtd), the task force chairman, on Tuesday, said the visit was to confirm the data presented to the task force by crisis-ravaged communities.

Pam assured that the task force would do its best to return people who left their domains or ancestral homes due to the crisis that ravaged those places.
