A huge relief may have come the way of residents of Maduguri metropolis as the Police Command in the state has arrested 10 suspected armed robbers, fake currency dealers and a rapist in Maiduguri metropolis and Kwaya/Kusar town, with the recovery of fake N1,000 notes worth N4.59 million, two AK 47 rifles and four magazines with rounds of live ammunition.

While parading the suspects on Wednesday in Maiduguri Police Headquarters, the Police Commissioner, Mr. Aderemi Opadokun, said that the police patrol and intelligence gathering in the state has led to the arrest of Adam Ajid of Fulatari ward of Maiduguri for defrauding unsuspected members of the public with fake Nigerian currencies.

He said the Special Anti-Armed Robbery Squad (SARS) personnel, following a tip-off, arrested the suspect on July 14 with bundles of N1,000 notes in three different serial numbers to the tune of N4.515 million, adding that the naira notes are suspected to be fake.
