In a significant crackdown on illicit activities, the Nasarawa State Police Command has confiscated 1,473 illegally acquired security materials from banned ethnic vigilante groups and other organizations operating within the state.

The recovery operation, led by the police, yielded a cache of items, including 267 sets of uniforms, 102 black belts, and 189 infantry lanyards, sourced from the Kungiyar Zaman Lafiya Nomad vigilante group.

This decisive action by the police is aimed at curbing unlawful activities and preserving peace and security across Nasarawa State, according to a statement released by the state police spokesperson, DSP Rahman Nansel, on Sunday.

The recovered items, which also include 564 black berets, 339 pieces of black, and 10 white lanyards, as well as 2 identification cards, were seized in compliance with Executive Order No.1 2024 issued by the Nasarawa state government, proscribing the operations of ethnic vigilante groups.

DSP Rahman Nansel emphasized that the recovery aligns with the directive to dismantle and prohibit the activities of such groups within the state boundaries.

Addressing the public, Nansel reiterated the call for all affected parties to adhere to the Executive Order, underscoring the enforcement of the ban on ethnic vigilante groups by the Police Command.

He urged those yet to comply with the order to do so within the stipulated two-week ultimatum, emphasizing the commitment of the Command to enforce the ban to its fullest extent.

The ban on ethnic vigilante groups was announced by the Nasarawa state government in response to the controversial establishment of a Fulani vigilante group, reflecting the administration's efforts to address security concerns and maintain order within the state.
