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.
