The Kano State Police Command has arrested 18 street urchins for allegedly conspiring to attack innocent members of the general public.

The State Police Commissioner, Mr Usaini Gumel, made this disclosure in an interview with newsmen in Kano on Monday.

Gumel said, “the suspects are members of an unlawful society poised to launch unprovoked attacks on innocent members of the public.”

The street urchins, according to him, were arrested at some crime-prone identified locations, criminal hideouts and black spots in the metropolis.

He listed the areas to include: Mazaunar Tanko, Dandishe, Kofar Dan Agundi, Kofar Mata, and Filin Idi.

Others are Kofar Na’Isa, Kwanar Diso, Kukar Bulukiya and Dorayi Babba.

The CP said items recovered from the suspects during the spot raid conducted on them included dangerous weapons and some dry weeds suspected to be marijuana.

Gumel added that all the suspects would be properly screened, profiled and after the conclusion of investigations prosecuted in court.

“More sting operations would be conducted to ensure that the state remains safe for all residents,” he stated.
