The Plateau police command says its operatives have arrested 66 suspected members of Sara-Suka, a cult group, operating within Jos north LGA of the state.

Steve Yabanet, the Plateau police commissioner, said the suspects were apprehended at different locations during Eid-el-Fitr celebrations.

Yabanet said two suspected armed robbers were also arrested at the Mavo community in Wase LGA of the state.

The commissioner said residents have always expressed reservations about the activities of the cult group during notable Islamic festivals.

“This is as a result of the recurring attacks on law-abiding Muslim faithful whenever such events are celebrated by members of the inglorious Sara-Suka, and other cult groups, street urchins and criminal elements,“ NAN quoted the police chief as saying.

“During my last press briefing, I made a promise to the good people of Plateau that this ugly trend will be arrested and will be a thing of the past.

“In order to achieve this, officers of the command were strategically deployed to all praying grounds, vulnerable locations and efficient motorised patrols put in place all over the state.

robbers in the state.”
