The commissioner said that the suspect was giving the police useful information that would lead to the arrest of his gang members currently at large.

He said that the police had intensified efforts, were to arrest all the suspects and make them to face the law.

Muri urged members of the various communities to cooperate with the police on matters of public safety and security as it is everybody’s business.
