The Katsina State Police Command on Saturday said it had arrested a syndicate of armed robbers that specialised in kidnapping people for ransom.

Several weapons, including one AK-47 rifle with breach number 4181, were allegedly recovered from the syndicate.

A statement by the command’s spokesperson, Gambo Isah, said the suspects were arrested on April 17 in Kaliyawa-Mahuta village, Dandume Local Government Area of the state by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

The statement gave the names of the suspects as Muntari Jibrin, 25; Dabo Hassan, 60; and Abdullahi Samu, 20.

They all hail from Rugar Dabo in the Dandume Local Government Area of Katsina State.

Others are Tukur Mamman, 20 (Faskari LGA, Katsina); Babangida Saidu, 27 (Tsafe LGA, Zamfara) and Ishaka Yusuf, 20 (Sabuwa LGA, Katsina).

Items reportedly recovered included one AK-47 rifle with 19 rounds of ammunition; two locally-made rifles, four empty magazines, one set of military camouflage, one jacket containing charms and one face mask.

The police spokesperson added, “The suspects have confessed to various armed robbery/kidnapping incidents along the highways in Zaria, Kaduna State and Funtua, Sabuwa and Dandume LGAs of Katsina State.

“Investigation is underway with a view to arresting other members of the syndicate and recover more of their operational weapons. They will be charged to court immediately investigation is completed.”
