He also said 15 officials of the corps had been remanded in the Sokoto Central Prison in the period under review. Speaking with newsmen in Sokoto, Madawaki stated that the convicted personnel were now serving their various jail terms in the prison. According to him, the offences ranged from sodomy, burglary, petty theft, impersonation, among others. He explained that all the affected officials were initially suspended, then handed over to the state police command for prosecution. “We have been doing this to sanitise our operations as our organisation was established by the state government to complement the efforts of the various security agencies. “Such efforts are aimed at securing lives and property, and to make life easier for all the law abiding residents of the state,” he said. The Commandant pledged that the organisation would not compromise its desired mandate by allowing bad elements in its fold . He stated that the corps had arrested no fewer than 786 motorists in the state for violating traffic rules and impounded their vehicles and motorcycles, while their cases were refered to the Motor Traffic Department of the state police command. “We had also arrested seven suspected criminals and handed them to the police command for further investigations and prosecution,”he stated.]]>
