The arrests were made both within and outside the state, reflecting the command’s commitment to maintaining law and order across borders.Among the notable apprehensions were Michael Bob, Abdul Omotoyosi, and Adeshina Idris, who were taken into custody for charges of conspiracy, armed robbery, and stealing.
