The Police in Kaduna State have warned rapists and other criminals to leave the state or face the music of law.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Command, ASP Aliyu Usman, gave the warning on Friday in Kaduna while fielding questions from the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Usman 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.
“Our well trained prosecutors have been prosecuting rape cases diligently and they have been securing conviction,” Usman said.
According to him, suspected rapists were always charged before Magistrates Court on holding charge pending advice from the state Ministry of Justice.
“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,” he said.
Usman said so far all cases of rape have been prosecuted successfully.
He said the Kaduna State Government is supporting the police on its effort to rid the state of rapists and other criminal related offences.
“When punishments are meted on the criminal it will serve as a deterrent to others which will reduce the crime rate in the society,” Usman said.
The spokesman said some of the challenges police faced on rape cases during investigation was the attitude of the victim and their parents.
“Some of them don’t want to cooperate during investigation while others don’t want to report the case to the police due to stigmatisation that may follow.
“We encourage the parents and the victims to always report to us such cases, our investigators are professionals in discharging their duties.
“Rape is a serious criminal offence, that is why we have special section in the command dedicated to investigating rape cases,” Usman said.
