An alleged notorious crim+nal, Nasiru Abdullahi aka Chile Maidoki, has reportedly joined the Nigeria Police Force as a police constabulary.
This comes barely three months after he was declared wanted by the Kano Police Command with a bounty of N100k placed on his head.
In trending pictures, Abdullahi was seen with a senior police officer at one of the Police Colleges and Training Schools.
According to SaharaReporters, he is among the 10,000 police constabularies undergoing six-month long training exercise to enhance community policing across the country.
Abdullahi was among the three notorious crim+nals declared wanted by the Kano command in August 2023.
However, he turned himself in at the Bompai headquarters of the command on Saturday, August 5, 2023, and was received by the Kano state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Usaini Gumel.
The command’s spokesperson, Abdullahi Kiyawa, in a statement had said: “One of the three notorious wanted crim+nals named Nasiru Abdullahi, popularly known as Chile Maidoki of Layin Falwaya Kurna Makabarta Quarters Kano has surrendered himself to the Office of the Commissioner of Police, Kano State Command, CP Mohammed Usaini Gumel, upon hearing the declaration of N100,000:00 bounty for his arrest.
This brings a total of 100 documented and profiled Repentant Crim+nals being that so far surrendered themselves to the police command.
During the hide and seek regime the said repentant terror Chile Maidoki said to the police that he used to sleep at burial ground yard in Kano City just to evade detection by security personnel.
He is now appealing to the Police and the good people of the State to forgive him, that he has repented and is now ready to work with the Police to promote sustainable peace and development in the State. He is therefore not to be arrested by the Police or stigmatised by members of the public.”
