Usman Baba, the Inspector-General of Police, has restated that his administration will not relent in fighting crimes and criminality in Nigeria, Daily Post reports.
In a statement by Force spokesman, Muyiwa Adejobi, the IGP hailed the Oyo Command, and the Force Intelligence Bureau Intelligence Response Squad (FIB-IRT) for recent successes.
Baba commended the increasing deployment of technologically advanced assets, community-based cum traditional policing methods, and improved police visibility.
The IGP acknowledged the achievements recorded via identification, trailing and arrest of criminal suspects through technical and human intelligence.

The suspects were nabbed after concluding plans to attack a new generation bank within the Ibadan metropolis in Oyo.

The police caught them as they attempted to hack into a company’s account and steal N3.4billion.
Furthermore, IRT operatives arrested notorious arms dealers and two kidnap suspects in Kaduna, which led to the release of two kidnapped persons.
Adejobi added that the suspects would be charged to court upon conclusion of investigations.
