Kaduna State Governor, Uba Sani, has received two Armoured Personnel Carriers, APC, and 200 highly trained members of the Special Squad of the Nigeria Police Force.

This followed the recent cases of incessant bandits and criminal attacks.

DAILY POST recalls that bandits attacked Kuriga community and kidnapped 137 schoolchildren, who were released last Saturday after 16 days in captivity.

Governor Uba Sani, who announced the development on his verified Facebook, wrote: “Today, I received two Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs) and 200 highly trained members of the Special Squad of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) deployed to Kaduna State by the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, to strengthen the fight against terrorism, banditry, kidnapping and other forms of criminality.

“This is a promise fulfilled. During his last visit to Kaduna State, the IGP promised to send equipment and personnel to strengthen the fighting capability and efficiency of the Nigeria Police Force in Kaduna State.

“We thank the IGP for his outstanding service and support to Kaduna State. We also appreciate Mr President for providing focused leadership at this trying time in Nigeria’s history and ensuring the safe return of the Kuriga schoolchildren.

“Before receiving the Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs) and 200 members of the Special Police Squad, we held a closed-door meeting with members of the Core Security Council and community leaders from Kuriga, Chikun LG.”
