The Kwara State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has arrested a notorious burglary syndicate responsible for a series of break-ins at warehouses, stores, and supermarkets in Apalara area of Ilorin.

According to the Command, the crack detectives from the command’s tracking unit apprehended two suspects: Garuba Kabir, 28, and Nasir Raheem, 30, based on intelligence gathered.

“The arrests followed reports from several shop owners in the Apalara area, who had complained about repeated burglaries resulting in the loss of valuable items worth millions of naira. The suspects had recently targeted four shops along Ali-Hikma University and New Yidi Road, Irewolede in Ilorin, stealing goods of significant value.

“Further investigation led the detectives to the gang’s storage location, where they recovered stolen goods, including food items, phone accessories, and solar gadgets”, said the Command in a statement.

The Commandant, Dr. Umar Mohammed, reaffirmed the command’s dedication to eradicating criminal activities in the state.

He called on the public to support the command by providing credible information to help prevent and tackle crime effectively.
