The police in Nasarawa State, working alongside vigilantes and volunteers in Aso Pada, Mararaba community in Karu LGA, have killed a suspected armed robber who had been causing unrest in the area and arrested one other suspect.

The spokesman ogf the command, DSP Ramhan Nansel, in a statement on Sunday, explained that on the night of April 5, 2024, the police received information about a gang of eight armed robbers attacking residents of Aso Pada, hence that police officers, vigilantes and community members engaged the criminals, resulting in the neutralisation of one Ifienyichukwu Ilegalu and the arrest of one Edache Joseph (20) in connection with criminal activities.
