Security operatives have expressed worry over the rising proliferation of small arms and light weapons in Plateau State, north-central Nigeria.

Commander of the Task Force, Major General Rogers Nicholas, made the declaration while parading some crime suspects at the Operation’s Headquarters in Jos, Plateau State capital.

He noted that the proliferation of weapons was a threat to the peace of the state which they have been working hard to restore.

Major General Nicholas disclosed that the 13 suspects were on parade for various offences ranging from unlawful possession of firearms, armed robbery and car snatching as well as buying and selling of hard drugs among others.

He said six members of an armed robbery gang were apprehended in Langtang, southern part of the state while a syndicate that specialises in the business of hard drugs were also arrested by officers of the task force during their routine operations.

However, the special task force in the state, code-named ‘Operation Safe Haven’ says it has put strategies in place to mop up such weapons.

The Commander expressed delight that the inter-agency collaboration between the Task Force and other security agencies has been yielding positive results in the fight against crime and urged the public to give relevant information.

He advocated for a review of the criminal justice administration which he said has been an impediment in dispensing justice as it concerns various arrests made by the task force.
