5 gangsters on wanted list arrested in Adamawa

Operatives of the Adamawa State Police Command have arrested five youths identified as Shila Boys, a group infamous for robbing residents of their belongings, mostly phones and similar light gadgets.

The police command said the five had been on its wanted list for a while.

In the statement released Wednesday by police image maker, Suleiman Nguroje, the Command said the suspects were arrested during routine operations at criminal hideouts and black spots, including Yola Market, Wuro Hausa, and Damare in Yola Town, Yola South Local Government Area.

“Those arrested were on the wanted list of the Command for Shilla gangsterism. They are currently under investigation to ensure that the law takes its course,” the statement said.

The command urged members of the public to help the fight against Shila Boys by being vigilant and reporting suspicious movements.

“If you see something, say something; and the police will do something,” the Command said.
