27 November 2012, 09:13

Jigawa - The Jigawa Police Command said on Monday it had arrested four men suspected to be members of a syndicate that specialised in armed robbery and shop breaking in some parts of the state.

The Commissioner of Police, Kayode Theophilus, said at a news conference in Dutse, that the syndicate operated in Yayari village in Buji Local Government Area.

Theophilus said the suspects operated with two others earlier arrested about two weeks ago in the state, adding that investigation into the case had begun.

He said some of the suspects in Takur, Dutse Local Government Area, were arrested based on information by members of the public.

The commissioner said they made confessional statements that they broke into the house of one Attah Emmanuel and Adamu Hussaini of Miyyati Allah quarters in Dutse.

Theophilus said a police patrol team in Duste also recovered a motorcycle with registration number QB 543 YKS, belonging to one Francis Akpede of the State Security Service.

The commissioner said in the course of investigation, a suspect from Karaye Local Government Area of Kano State was arrested while riding on the motorcycle.

He said the suspect alleged that he was sent from Malunfashi Local Government Area of Katsina State ``to come and be stealing such items in Jigawa’’.
