Robbery Suspect, Edache Joseph
Operatives of the Nasarawa State Police Command, on Friday, shot dead a suspected member of a eight-man armed robbery gang in Aso Pada, Karu Local Government Area of the State.

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ramhan Nansel, in a statement on Saturday morning said one other suspect was arrested in an operation carried out in collaboration with vigilante and brave members of the community.

According to the statement, the police operatives also recovered two stolen phones and other items from the two suspects as exhibits.

Mr Nansel said the state Commissioner of Police, CP Shehu Umar Nadada, worried by a spike in cases of armed robbery in Karu where young boys between the ages of 19-25 years go about in groups attacking residents and dispossessing them of their belongings, rejigged the community policing template of the area by mobilising members of the public and Vigilante groups to work in synergy with the police.

The police spokesperson, added that the strategy paid off when information was received that a gang of armed robbers were attacking some residents.

“Upon receipt of the information, Police operatives in collaboration with Vigilante and some brave members of the community went after hoodlums thus, neutralised one Ifeanyichukwu Ilegalu and arrested one Edache Joseph 'M'20yrs where two stolen Phones and other items were recovered from the suspects as exhibits.

“The suspect, Edache Joseph, has made a useful statement, and he is assisting the Police in the investigation,” the statement reads further.

Reacting, the CP Nadada commended the efforts of the police operatives, vigilante group, and members of the community for their display of bravery and assured them of his continuous support.

He tasked other members of the public to cooperate with the police in order to ride the state of criminals.
