Professor Babagana Umara Zulum, the Borno State Governor, has begged the Inspector General of Police to redeploying all the disbanded members of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) to Borno State to to help in combating Boko Haram.
Governor Zulum, made the plea in the state capital, Maiduguri, when he received Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, the minister of interior, who was on an official visit in the state.
He mentioned that the SARS unit had recorded commendable achievements by using their energy and fearlessness against Boko Haram in Borno state.
He said he would really like to see them being redeployed to his state since their services are no longer needed anymore to help them combat Boko Haram.
In his words, he said;
“We are not in support of brutality by any security outfit, but to be sincere, here in Borno State, the efforts of SARS operatives in the counter-insurgency operations need not to be over-emphasized,”
Police Nab Woman For Trying To Sell Her 4-month-old Baby For N40k In Ebonyi
A 32-year-old lady alleged to be a prostitute has been apprehended by the police in Ebonyi state for allegedly trying to sell her little baby for a paltry sum of N40,000.
The woman identified as Victoria Chukwube, was arrested by the police, while she was negotiating to sell her four-month-hold baby boy to raise money to start selling drinks
Loveth Odah, the Ebonyi state police spokesperson, said the suspect was arrested following a tip off.
“So her name is Chukwube Victoria, she told us she is a commercial sex hawker and that she has this baby which she carrying.
“She said if she leaves here she would continue to look out for prospective buyers.
“But we tried to talk to her and to make her see the value of being a mother, but she refused.
“She even told us that if we allow her to go home with the baby she will throw the baby away and that she can’t tell who got her pregnant.”
When she was being interrogated, Chukwube declined to reveal her state of origin or local government but insisted that she wanted to sell the baby because she lacks the financial capacity to take care of him.
“I am from Nigeria, 32 years old, a commercial sex hawker and my baby is just four months old.
