16 arrested for setting Police vehicle ablaze in Niger state

The Niger State Police command has arrested 16 people following an attack in which one of its patrol vehicles were set ablaze. 

The state Commissioner of Police, Alhaji Adamu Usman told newsmen that the driver of the police vehicle and two civilians who sustained injuries in the attack were taken to the hospital for treatment after the attack. 

Usman who accused members of the Amalgamated Commercial Motorcycle Riders Association of Nigeria in Niger State of leading the attack yesterday January 25, added that anyone caught or linked to mob action will be dealt with decisively. 

He said; 

“On 25th January at about 15: 40 hours, a police patrol team closed for afternoon shift duty and was moving on Western bye-pass road to Police Headquarters, Minna for duty handing and taking over.

“On reaching the pedestrian bridge at Kure Market junction, Minna, a trailer driver attempted to overtake the Police vehicle but ended up brushing the patrol vehicle forcing the Police driver to hit two pedestrians who sustained various degrees of injuries.

“Consequently, the hoodlums suspected to be Okada riders stationed close to the market, took laws into their hands, attacked the patrol team, mobbed three police personnel and set the patrol vehicle ablaze.

“This aided the escape of the trailer driver who is the principal suspect.

“However, the police driver, the motorcyclist and his passenger are undergoing treatment at Police Clinic and IBB Hospital, respectively.

“We have arrested 16 suspects and 20 motorcycles have been impounded for investigation. 

“We will not tolerate any act of indiscipline from any person or group of people.”
