Police Net Closes on 178 Suspects in Plateau State Raids

The Plateau State Police pulled off a major operation, arresting 178 suspects wanted for various crimes. The arrests, announced on Monday, July 8th by Commissioner of Police Emmanuel Adesina, targeted individuals involved in kidnapping, trafficking, cultism, and illegal possession of firearms.

The operation netted 118 suspects apprehended during a raid on a suspected cult hideout on July 7th, which coincided with a known day of cult celebration and initiation. The remaining 60 suspects were arrested over the past month for various offenses, including armed robbery, criminal conspiracy, and trafficking.

“Based on credible intelligence gathered, I ordered the raiding of an apartment suspected to be a hideout of a cult syndicate,” Commissioner Adesina explained. “As a result, the command’s Eagle-Eye Patrol Unit (EEPU) arrested these suspects.”

All arrested suspects are currently under investigation. Once investigations are complete, they will face formal charges and appear in court.
