February 25, (THEWILL) – The Police in Kano have arrested three suspects for attempting to cause chaos when pharmaceutical traders were relocating their goods to a new market.

This is contained in a statement issued on Sunday, by the state Commissioner of Police, Usaini Mohammed Gumel.

Gumel said the arrest was effected in the wake of the closure of Mai-Karami Plaza by an ongoing operation led by the NAFDAC enforcement Team supported by the Pharmaceutical Council of Nigeria (PCN), which commenced on February 18.

He said when some of the pharmaceutical traders were relocating their wares to their new market at Dangwauro Economic City located on Zaria Road, some hoodlums attempted to cause chaos there but were promptly dispersed by policemen.

He said the suspect intended to hijack the process and break into some of the shops at the Plaza.

The commissioner said the suspects are now in police custody, while “a full security coverage of the Plaza had been directed.”

He said additional police personnel had been deployed to the Plaza to maintain law and order.
