“We have told these criminals that Kwara is not a safe haven for them.
“We promised before Christmas to make the state safe for residents and those coming for yuletide celebrations; this is making good our promises.
“The command will not relent until we arrest each and every one of those suspects that are at large and bring them to justice,” the commandant said.
He said that the suspects would be transferred to the appropriate department for further investigation and prosecution within the ambit of the law.
