Bauchi (IP) - The Nigeria Police Force in Bauchi State has successfully captured 19 kidnappers and armed robbers in the State.

Iran PressAfrica: In a press conference attended by Iran Press correspondent at Bauchi State Police headquarters, Police Commissioner Abiodun Alabi said that the suspects arrested in different places and times will be brought to justice.

The Police Commissioner also paraded the criminals and their weapons.

The Police Commissioner assured that they would do whatever it takes to protect the lives and properties of people in the State.

Bauchi is one of the few states in Northern Nigeria in which cases of insecurity are low.

Meanwhile, people in Zamfara and Katsina States continue to live without phone calls and internet services after authorities shut down telecommunication networks in what they said was an effort to bring an end to banditry and other terrorist activities.

Some residents of Birshin Fulani, a suburb of Bauchi metropolis, in Nigeria as early as 7 am on Friday blocked the Bauchi-Dass road protesting the deteriorating security in the area.
