“We raided their hide out and we were able to recover 22 laptop computers, computer mouse, laptop chargers and extension boxes.”
Also, he said a Honda CRV vehicle with registration number Abuja YAB 458 DC, which was stolen from Ajaokuta, Kogi State and brought to Nasarawa State by a suspected criminal had been recovered by officers of the command.
He explained that the stolen vehicle was intercepted by police officers who mounted a stop-and-search point at Gidan Kwano along Nasarawa-Loko road in Nasarawa Local Government Area of the State.
He added: “The stolen vehicle was intercepted and recovered by the Police and the suspect arrested has confessed to the crime.
