Akwa Ibom State police command says ten persons have been arrested in connection with the recent killing of security operatives and attacks on police facilities in the state.
The arrests were made during a series of raids on locations of criminal elements by the Joint Task Force (JTF) comprising operatives of the Nigerian Army, the Police, the Department of State Services (DSS), and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
The state Commissioner of Police, Andrew Amiengheme, who disclosed this in a statement noted that the security operatives recovered several items, including vehicles, arms, ammunition, as well as some cash from the suspects.
Amiengheme urged owners of vehicles recovered from the hoodlums to go to the 6 Battalion, Nigerian Army in the Ibagwa area with proof of ownership for identification and collection, or contact the Police Headquarter in Uyo, the state capital.
He commended the Nigerian Army and other security agencies for the success and assured them that the police would continue to work with them to secure the state.
The police commissioner appealed to the people to go about their lawful duties without fear of molestation and not relent in being vigilant.
