NSCDC arrest five for attempted murder in Taraba: The Taraba State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, on Tuesday, paraded five suspects for the attempted murder of a nail cutter at the Kona ward in Jalingo.
Parading the suspects before journalists in Jalingo, the state Commandant of the NSCDC, Alhaji Aliyu Ndanusa, said they lured the nail cutter to trim the nails of their boss at a location.
According to him, men of the command got a tip-off and followed them to the crime scene, where they were arrested and the victim rescued with injuries.
Ndanusa, who named the suspects as Bruno Augustine, Pius Daniel, Elijah Daniel, Destiny Daniel and John Gobai, stated that the victim was already receiving treatment at the Federal Medical Centre, Jalingo.
He said they were arrested on Wednesday at Kona Garu, near Jalingo, and would be charged on Thursday.
Ndanusa called on criminals to change their ways and become responsible citizens or face the full wrath of the law.
“I want to advise other criminals in the state to turn a new leaf or the command will come hard on anyone perpetrating evil in the state,” he said.
Ndanusa also said the command recently had a joint task force with other sister security agencies, which was dealing with crisis in Southern Taraba and other parts of the state.
