Recall that suspected hoodlums who disguised as protesters, attacked some police and prisons formations in the State last October.

The police Commissioner dropped the hint during a meeting with Governor Godwin Obaseki at Government House, in Benin City, the State Capital.

He promised to work with the State government to check the crime rate and ensure a crime-free society.

He said: “We would do our best to ensure the state is crime-free and there will be changes in the state.

“54 firearms were stolen during #EndSARS protest and only 8 of the arms have been recovered. We will do our best in ensuring all the arms are recovered. Stationary vehicles should be in strategic positions awaiting distress calls from Citizens”, he said.
