The Kaduna State Police Command have warned rapists and other criminals to leave the state or face the wrath of the law.
The Police Public Relations Officer of the Command, ASP Aliyu Usman, who gave the warning on Friday in Kaduna, asked criminals to find other legal jobs as the command was committed to providing a crime-free society.
He assured residents that rape cases would continue to receive proper investigation and prosecution with a view to ending the crime.
He said, “Our well trained prosecutors have been prosecuting rape cases diligently and they have been securing conviction.”
According to him, suspected rapists were always charged before Magistrates Court on holding charge pending advice from the state Ministry of Justice.
He said, “On the process of the prosecution of the case files are duplicated and sent to the Ministry of Justice for legal advice.
“Immediately we receive the advice, we take the original copies of the case files to court and the charges will be referred to a High Court for prosecution.”
Usman said so far all cases of rape have been prosecuted successfully.
