The police command in Borno says it has secured 250 convictions within the past three months – July 1 to September 30.
The state Commissioner of Police (CP), Mr Mohammed Lawan, made this known in Maiduguri on Monday while briefing newsmen on the achievements of the command in the past three months.
Lawan said a total of 537 suspects were arrested for various crimes including robbery, culpable homicide, gender-based violence, vandalism, and public nuisance within the period under review.
He lauded Gov. Babagana Zulum’s administration for reviewing the Borno Penal Code which he said facilitated the convictions and prescribed stiffer penalties for criminals.
