While parading them, the Patrol and Guard officer Mr. Ime Nathan said they carried out the arrests based on the information volunteered to them by the public, as well as their surveillance activities within the Makurdi metropolis.
Nathan said the force was not going to relax on their resolve until criminality was reduced to the barest minimum in Benue with emphasis on Makurdi towns.
Also speaking, the Commandant of BSCVG Capt Ayuma Ajobi said he will continue to support the Special Team to carry on with its activities of combing the nooks and crannies of Makurdi in order to minimally curb criminal activities that are usually on the high during yuletide seasons.
He encouraged the public to go about their normal activities as according to him, plans were in place to step up more surveillance within Makurdi to further ensure crime-free Christmas and New Year Celebrations.
Ayuma, therefore, called on the public to volunteer useful information to the force that will aid them to apprehend more criminals in the state.
