No fewer than two major dare devil kidnap gangs and other armed robbery kingpins have either been smashed or rounded up since Imo State government announced N1 million reward for every credible information that will lead to the arrest of the rampaging hoodlums.
Imo State Commissioner of Police, CP, Mr. Ibrahim Maishanu, disclosed this while fielding questions from journalists in Owerri, on the effect of Governor Ikedi Ohakim’s recent promise on the issue.
He said: “Governor Ohakim’s N1 million reward for informants has proved to be very effective. People have started benefitting from it. I therefore call on those who have credible information to come forward with it and benefit from the same award.”
According to Imo police boss, the state government has been very supportive to all the security agencies operating in the state.
He said the command will not relent in its current move to rid Imo State of hoodlums.
Maishanu promised to continue adjusting and readjusting the operational plans of his command to combat crime and criminals in Imo State, stressing that the successes recorded showed that the reward game plan was effective.
