The Adamawa State Police Command has arrested eight persons and recovered N3.8m during a raid on criminal hideouts.
The raid was in response to a new charge by Commissioner of Police in the state, Oyekunle Adegboyega, who called for more dedication from officers in the fight against criminals and syndicates.
According to the Public Relations Officer of the Command, Othman Abubakar, scores of street urchins popularly known as “Yan’shila”, were also dislodged during the exercise.
He said, “Three of the Yan’shila boys notorious for carrying out petty theft were also caught with one barreta pistol during the raid.
“The new Commissioner of Police has given all area commanders matching orders to flush out criminals in their domain. I’m happy to say that they have woken up and we are seeing the results.
“Since we made the arrest of these eight suspects, the area has been a bit calm.”
