Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon E. Arase, has dispatched a special crack squad to stem the spate of cultism, kidnapping, robberies and other related vices in Edo State, a statement from his office said.

“The squad is headed by Deputy Commissioner of Police, Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad and comprises units from Police Mobile Force, Explosives Ordinance Department (EOD), State Anti-Robbery Section (SARS), Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (CIID). Members of the Squad were charged to employ professionalism, discipline and courage in carrying out the assignment,” Force Public Relations Officer, Ag. CP Emmanuel C. S. Ojukwu, said in the statement issued this afternoon in Abuja.

Ojukwu disclosed that Arase “is concerned about unabated activities of cultists and other violent criminals in Edo State,” adding: “The deployment of this team is in line with the IGP’s thrust and commitment to ensure the protection of life and property, and to build a people-oriented Police Force.

“The IGP further admonished members of the public to remain steadfast in collaborating with the Police, to report any suspicious person at the nearest police station for prompt action.”
