Security personnel in Minna, the capital of Niger State, have been ordered by the state government to open fire on any criminal caught in the act with a weapon.

During a meeting of stakeholders at the palace of Alhaji Umar Farouk Bahago, the Emir of Minna, this decision was made.

This move is essential to protect innocent individuals and enable them to go about their everyday lives fearlessly, according to the chairman of Chanchaga Local administration Area, who conveyed the decision of the state administration.

Hoodlums in Minna have reportedly been attacking people recently, including those making their way to tahajud prayers.

Ladan, chairman of the Chanchaga Local Government Area, reiterated the government’s stance on protecting the freedom of movement and peaceful assembly of its inhabitants.

He made it clear that the government will not stand for anarchy that endangers citizens.

The decision has been executed, according to Musa Adamu Maikudi Achaza, the Minna Metro Security Watch’s public relations officer. He stated that security officers have begun conducting house-to-house searches in order to capture and prosecute criminals.

According to SP Wasiu Abiodun, the state police public relations officer, multiple people have been arrested in relation to recent criminal activities.
