This was revealed in a statement issued by the command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Magaji Majiya, made available to newsmen in Kano on Thursday.
He said “the command was also able to recover 125 stolen motor vehicles abandoned during the period.’’
Majiya added that the command also recovered 24 high calibre Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in different locations in the state.
He stated that 214 suspects charged with rape were arrested, in addition to 27 others charged with homicide within the period under review.
“These achievements cannot be ruled out of the cordial synergy enjoyed with all sister security organisations, the state government, traditional institution, members of the press and good people of Kano State,’’ the PPRO said.
While commending the people for their cooperation, Majiya called for the sustenance of the tempo in 2015 and beyond, so as to ensure a crime-free society.
