#EndSARS protests: Police arrest 25 suspected looters in Kaduna State

The Kaduna State Police Command has arrested no fewer than 25 suspects for allegedly looting private and public property, as hoodlums hijacked the #EndSARS protests.

 

The Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Jalige, made this known at a news conference in Kaduna on Monday.

 

He said that following the current trend of #EndSARS protests across the country and the subsequent hijacking of the protests by hoodlums, the state had witnessed the looting and destruction of property.

 

He said that the state government consequently imposed a 24-hour curfew to curb criminal activities of the miscreants.

 

Jalige said that the police had apprehended 25 suspects for alleged criminal conspiracy, vandalism and looting of public and private property.

 

He listed some of the exhibits recovered from the suspects as three Toyota buses, one Mercedes Benz car, one Golf car and one Toyota Camry car.

 

He said that others included six Boxer motorcycles, six mattresses, one bundle of zinc, eight tricycles, 29 bags of grains and 32 pieces of plant fibre mosquito coils.

 

Besides, Jalige said that some medical items and drugs, including electrical gadgets, among others, were recovered.

 

He said that the police and other security agencies were still working to ensure that more offenders were arrested.

 

Meanwhile, the 25 suspects have been charged to court for prosecution.
