The Police Command in Enugu State says it is trailing hoodlums masquerading themselves as commercial tricycles and taxi cabs operators to commit heinous crimes in the state.
The command’s Spokesman, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said this in a statement in Enugu on Wednesday.
According to Amaraizu, plain cloth detectives have been detailed to trail, arrest the tricycle and taxi cab operators, popularly called “one-chance” in the state.
Amaraizu said that some of the operators had resorted to using the antics of being tricycle and taxi passengers to dispossess people, especially women, of their valuables.
He advised members of the public to be wary of the antics of the hoodlums who also masqueraded as tricycle operators, otherwise known as Keke NAPEP.
“The command is also advising members of the public to be security conscious.
“Please, report promptly to the command through its distress call lines: 08032003702, 08075390883, 08086671202 and 08098880172.
“You can also get us on our social media platforms of @PoliceNG_Enugu, for twitter; Nigeriapoliceforceenugustatecommand for Facebook, about any threat to peace and security in your environment or any suspicious movement and happening around you,’’ he said.
