  1. What would be their penalty if taken to court, as this has been happening in the state, we have been hearing about their arrest but at the end of the day you can hear anything in that regards, I think if this kind of criminals are been punished accordingly the rate of crimes will reduce in the metropolitan.

  2. I live in kofar kwaya (bayan ATC), where those notorious hooligans conduct operation some years back that caused the deaths of a gentleman named Abdullahi Muhammad. His deaths drew the attention of many people in the State. Due to that incident, the emir (Alh Abdulmumini Kabir Usman) and the governor of the state (Alh Aminu Bello Masari) promised to bring solution of insecurity in those areas because they’re the major areas where such incidents happened all the time. Alhamdulillah the government brought three civil defense Outpost in those areas. One at bayan ATC, another one is at filin ATC opposite ATC main gate, and the last one at RAFINDADI primary school. Alhamdulillah we don’t have such problems now. I’m seeking for the government to please make sure that whoever is court in such act is punish according to the law.
