Four suspects have been arrested by the Adamawa State Police Command in connection with the alleged assault on the state’s Commissioner of Environment, Muhammed Sadiq.

The suspects were also accused of stealing his official vehicle along with other belongings.

The authorities also recovered a stolen Toyota Hilux, a Beretta pistol, three live rounds of ammunition, two anti-tracking devices, phones, and foreign currency.

According to a statement by the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Suleiman Nguroje, the arrested suspects are identified as Salihu Buhari, aged 38, and Abdullahi Abubakar, aged 35, both from Garoua in the Cameroon Republic; Isa Adamu, aged 55, from Tudun Wada, Sokoto State; and Mustapha Muhammed, aged 47, from Lelewalji, Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

Nguroje revealed that the suspects were captured by a collaborative effort of police operatives from Girei Divisional Police Headquarters on Monday following their assault on the Commissioner earlier in the day.

Subsequently, the Commissioner was transported to a hospital for medical treatment.

The operation’s success was attributed to a policing strategy aimed at combating various criminal activities, including armed robbery, gang violence, and kidnapping, both within and outside the state capital.
