The Police has arrested one of the suspected kingpins in the Mamobi-Nima riot and the leader of the “Bombom gang”, Ali Awudi. Announcing the arrest on its Facebook page on Sunday, the Police said, the suspect, who has been on the run since the violent clash, was arrested at Aflao through an intelligence-led operation. His arrest means that the leaders of the two groups are both in Police custody.
On January 18, 2022, there was a violent clash between youth groups in Mamobi and Nima. Suspect Ibrahim Hussein, alias Kumodzi, leader of the Kumordzi group was earlier arrested on February 4, 2022, in a similar intelligence-led exercise. So far, 14 suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident, and “we are still pursuing other members of the gang to bring them to face justice.
As we had earlier assured, the Police will do whatever it takes to arrest all other members of the gang and dismantle their activities through the due process of the law,” the Police stated.
