Governor Dikko Umaru Radda of Katsina State on Tuesday night joined personnel of various security agencies in the state to raid hideouts of daredevil criminals in the Katsina metropolis.
The Chief Press Secretary, CPS, to the Katsina Governor, Ibrahim Kaula Mohammed, disclosed this in a statement.
Kaula noted that the raid which took place between 10 – 11:30 pm had the
the Governor and his delegation of security personnel raiding Sabuwar Unguwa, Sharar Pipe, Dan Hako, Filin Polo, Kofar Guga and Tudun Matawalle.
“The criminals, in recent months, have been terrorizing residents of the aforementioned areas and other parts of the Katsina metropolis.
“The hooligans specialize in snatching phones and extortion of properties of residents in various parts of Katsina city.”
During their nocturnal raid, Governor Dikko Radda, in his avowed commitment to rid the State of criminal elements, once again dished out commands to operatives of the police to deal ‘mercilessly’ with the miscreants breaching peace and public order, across Katsina.
Following last night’s ‘clearance operation’ at the identified criminals’ abodes, Radda, early Wednesday, summoned an emergency meeting with Security Chiefs in the State over the resurgence of crimes in some parts of Katsina.
He lamented his worry and displeasure over the acute security challenges bedeviling the State, urging the security chiefs to be more proactive in carrying out their statutory responsibilities.
