The Nasarawa State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of a suspected armed robber identified as Victor Ayuba in the Karu Local Government Area of the state.

A statement issued on Thursday by the state’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ramhan Nansel, states that a locally fabricated pistol and 21 rounds of AK-47 ammunition were recovered from the suspect.

The PPRO explained that the arrest was sequel to a distress call received by the command on Monday when the suspect and other members of his gang were operating at the Ado junction in Karu, snatching valuables from residents.

The statement reads, “On 22/11/2021 at about 2135hrs, a distress call was received that unidentified armed men were shooting sporadically and dispossessing innocent passer-by of their valuables at Ado junction, Karu LGA of the state.

“Upon receipt of the information, the Commissioner of Police swiftly deployed a detachment of Police Operatives attached to New Karu Division, led by SP Aaron Kaura to the scene; on sighting the Police, the bad boys/hoodlums took to flight in a different direction but were given a hot chase by the gallant police operatives.

“Consequently, one Victor Ayuba ‘M’ 25 years of New Nyanya who has been on the wanted list of the Police command for the offence of armed robbery was arrested; a polythene bag containing twenty-one (21) rounds of 7.62mm ammunition and one locally fabricated pistol were recovered from him as exhibits.

“The Commissioner of Police has commended the officers for a job well done and urged them to sustain the tempo and flush out criminals in the State”.

According to the statement, the suspect will be charged to court upon conclusion of investigation at State Criminal Investigation Department, Lafia the state capital.
