The Nasarawa State Police Command has nabbed a suspected criminal who had been disturbing the peace of the residents in the Karu Local Government Area of the state.

This was in a statement signed by DSP Ramhan Nansel, the Police Public Relations Officer, in Lafia on Sunday.

Nansel said the suspect, a 26-year-old resident of Aso Pada, was nabbed by the police operatives of the Mararaba ‘A’ Division during a stop-and-search operation at Kabayi in the Karu LGA.

The PPRO explained that one locally fabricated Barretta pistol and one live ammunition were recovered from the suspect as an exhibit.

He said the suspect had offered vital information, adding that efforts to trail and arrest other members of the syndicate were ongoing.

“On 25/5/2024 at about 02:00hrs, acting based on credible information about the movement of an armed robbery suspect responsible for a series of armed robbery activities in Kabayi, Aso Pada and Mararaba General Area of Karu LGA, police operatives attached to Mararaba ‘A’ Division created a stop and search point at Kabayi to get the criminal arrested.

“The effort paid off when the suspect named David Samuel ‘M’ 26 years of Aso Pada, was sighted by the eagle-eyed operatives and was arrested, where one locally fabricated Barretta pistol and one live ammunition were recovered from him as exhibits.

“The suspect has made useful statements, and efforts to trail and arrest other members of the syndicate are ongoing,” Nansel said.

According to the PPRO, Umar Shehu Nadada, the state Commissioner of Police, had ordered that the 26-year-old suspect be charged to court for prosecution upon the conclusion of an investigation into the matter.
