Police authorities in Kaduna State have arrested two suspects with 600 bags of fertiliser suspected to be stolen.

ASP Mansir Hassan, spokesman of the command confirmed the development in a statement issued on Tuesday in Kaduna.

He said the command received intelligent information on December 8, 2023, that one suspected truck was sighted along Kaduna/Zaria Road.

“Upon the receipt of the information, the Commissioner of Police, Ali Dabigi, directed a team of operatives under his supervision (CP Monitoring Unit) to promptly respond to the distress call.

According to him, the monitoring unit mobilised a team of detectives led by ASP Abdullahi Idris. With prompt action by the police, the truck was intercepted along the Kawo axis and one suspect was arrested.

“The suspect arrested happened to be the truck driver, who hails from Nasarawa Pan Madina, in the Igabi Local Government Area of Kaduna State,” he said.

He said the suspect was conveying 600 bags of fertiliser suspected to be stolen property from Kaduna to Zaria.

Mr Hassan said a preliminary investigation revealed that the said items were suspected to have been stolen by a suspect from the Rigasa area of Igabi LGA, who was also arrested by the operatives. He added that the suspect was assisting the police with the investigation.

He said the CP appealed to the general public to continue to support the police with useful information that would enable them to succeed in their fight against any form of criminality in the state.
