A new batch of 43 thugs from two rival groups of Goburawa-Gangare and Tudun Fulani Quarters of Ungogo LGA of Kano State have embraced peace and surrender themselves to the state’s police command.
The 43 thugs bring the total number of repentant thugs in the State to 143. The repentant thugs were in the company of some elders, who are stakeholders in the community.
SP Abdullahi Haruna Kiyawa, The Command’s spokesman, in a statement, explained that these 43 thugs from the two rival groups were previously engaged in violent rival fights for more than five years.
According to the statement, the fights often lead to attacks on innocent citizens, resulting in loss of lives, injuries to people, and damage to properties.
He said, “They have now repented, surrendered themselves, and promised to work with the Police Command to promote sustainable peace and development of the State.”
The Commissioner of Police further issued a stern warning to criminals, advising them to steer clear of the State.
He reiterated his commitment to offering a bounty of N500,000.00 to anyone who provides the command with information which will lead to the apprehension of two notorious criminals: Abba Burakita from Dorayi Quarters, Kano, or Hantar Daba from Kwanar Disu Quarters, Kano.
While appreciating the state government for their continuous support of community policing initiatives in the state, he, insisted that his ultimate goal is the “security and safety” of residents.
