Sixty-four suspected touts and a suspected robber have been arrested by the Anambra State Anti-Touting Squad (SASA) in Onitsha.
The SASA Director of Operations, Solomon Onwuemene after parading the suspects, said that the squad commenced operations immediately after it’s inauguration by Governor Charles Soludo.
Onwuemene stated that the suspects were arrested at Upper Iweka, Bridge Head and Chisco Motor Park respectively.
He stated that the squad will make Onitsha and other cities in the state uncomfortable for touts and those who engage in criminal activities in Anambra state.
According to him, the operatives are determined to rid the state of all forms of social vices and advised those who derive pleasure in touting to make themselves productive by keying into Governor Soludo’s youthful policies and programmes.
Onwuemene revealed that all those arrested would be tried according to the law to serve as deterrent to others.
