Nigerian police said on Tuesday they had arrested 297 people suspected to be involved in kidnapping, fraud, robbery and weapon smuggling in the northern state of Kano.

Abdullahi Haruna, the state police spokesperson, said in a statement the arrests, made between April 10 to May 23, were in continuation of efforts at ridding the state of crimes and criminality.

The arrests, according to Haruna, were made as a result of robust community policing engagements, intelligence-led and visibility policing, sustained synergy with sister security agencies, and a massive campaign against thuggery.

The spokesperson said all the suspects would be charged to court upon completion of the investigation.

The northern part of Nigeria has long been haunted by security challenges such as gunmen attacks, kidnapping and cattle rustling. Enditem
