Police arrests suspected railway track vandal in Kaduna

Operatives of police command in Kaduna State have arrested a suspect involved in the vandalism of railway tracks with 100 pieces of rail tracks.

ASP Mansir Hassan, the Command’s Police Public Relations Officer, told newsmen on Saturday in Kaduna that the arrest took place following a credible intelligence report at about 1:30 hrs on May 20.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) report, he added, “the suspect, Naim Mikaila, a resident of Kajuru in Kaduna State, was found in possession of 100 pieces of railway tracks.”

The PPRO further explained that during interrogation, Mikaila was unable to provide a satisfactory explanation for the possession of these items, leading to the suspicion that they were stolen property.

The Commissioner of Police, Ali Dabig, according to Hassan urged all citizens to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities or miscreants to the police.

He added that the suspect would be charged to court soon to face the full weight of the law.
