Okonkwo said the arrest signified a major breakthrough in the determination to rid Jos of bad elements.
“We shall not rest until petty crimes, killings and other forms of insecurity are curtailed.
“These suspects are largely responsible for the crimes and all forms of disorder in Jos.
“They kill innocent people on daily basis; they are very dangerous human beings.
“Yes, we have redeployed our troops to the hinterlands, but we shall continue to raid communties in the city centre to halt these crimes,” he said.
