While thanking members of the public for their usual support and cooperation with the Police, Gumel also solicited the cooperation of ward heads where the suspects are located to help in identifying the thugs.

Some of the suspects paraded before newsmen includes; 24 armed robbery suspects, three kidnappers, two suspected drug dealers, nine suspected thieves, two vehicle thieves, three Tricycle thieves, three motorcycle thieves, 57 suspected thugs(Yan daba), five suspected fraudsters.
