That Mr Sani Abdullahi a tricycle driver popularly known as Keke NAPEP, while on his way to convey eggs from a poultry located at Anguwan Jarawa in Jos Metropolis was killed by youths. The tricycle driver claimed that he was attacked alongside his friends and the tricycle snatched from him, while his friends were killed.

This allegation generated tension in Jos Metropolis. It took the timely intervention of troops of Operation SAFE HAVEN and other security agencies to maintain calm in Jos Metropolis. Also, the troops with other security agencies conducted extensive search around Anguwan Jarawa where the killing was alleged to have occured and hospitals in Jos and no information on any injured person who reported for treatment or corpse deposited in any of the hospitals. We also deployed intelligence to continue to monitor the situation and report accordingly.

Yesterday, being Wednesday 3 Nov 2021, Mr Sani Abdullahi who was reported to have been killed resurfaced at Ali Kazaure area.

He was immediately arrested and preliminary investigation revealed that Mr Sani Abdullahi collected the Tricycle (Keke NAPEP) from one Hajia Amina on hire purchase and dubiously attempted to retain the tricycle without paying for it. That is why he claimed that he was attacked alongside his friends and the tricycle snatched from him while his friends were killed.

The suspect also confessed to have taken the tricycle to Saminaka for safe keeping. Following this confession, the Commander OPSH Maj General Ibrahim Ali ordered the recovery of the tricycle. Accordingly, our troops went to Saminaka in Kaduna State and successfully recovered the tricycle.

The Commander OPSH while appreciating the community leaders who helped in dousing the tension in Jos metropolis, wishes to use this medium to call on members of the public to always report criminal elements in their midst and desist from taking the laws into their hands.

OPSH once again assures of its total commitment to the maintenance of law and order on the Plateau without fear or favour.
