Officials of Abia State government security agencies have destroyed structures believed to be used by criminals in Aba, the commercial capital of the state.

The raid on the criminals’ hideouts came as the government told landlords that anyone whose building is used by robbers, kidnappers and drug dealers, among other criminals, will be prosecuted, and such buildings demolished.

The exercise took place at the Aba abattoir and the abandoned Enyimba Hotel.
