He appealed to residents in the area to always help the police with useful information that would assist in tracking criminals and their hideouts in the area.
He said, “We appeal to residents to be calm as the police are on top of the situation.
“I urge them to cooperate with us by giving useful information on criminal activities and perpetrators.”
