2 fraudsters posing as spirits arrested in Katsina 

The Katsina State police command has arrested the duo of one Kabiru Bashir, ‘M’, aged 27yrs and Sadiq Ashiru, ‘M’, aged 30yrs, both of Danbatta LGA of Kano State for defrauding citizens through phone calls posing as spirits (ALJANU).

This is contained in a statement signed by the command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Gambo Isah.

The statement reads in part: “On 08/01/2021 at about 12:00hrs, the Command succeeded in arresting the duo of one Kabiru Bashir, ‘M’, aged 27yrs and Sadiq Ashiru, ‘M’, aged 30yrs, both of Danbatta LGA of Kano state, notorious fraudsters who specializes in defrauding unsuspecting members of the public through phone calls posing as spirits (ALJANU).

“Nemesis caught up with the suspects when they stole the ATM card of one Rabi’atu Garba, ‘F’ of Mani LGA of Katsina state and started calling her that they are spirits (AlJanu) and asked her to avail them with her ATM card PIN number.

“The suspects deceitfully told her that they are about to bless her by sending one million naira to her account and directed her to go to her bank, UBA branch in Katsina and update her account.

“She became suspicious and reported the matter at the Central Police Station, (CPS) Katsina.

“In the course of investigation suspects were trailed and arrested. They confessed to the commission of the offence and stated that they have defrauded several unsuspecting persons in the state through the same modus operandi.

“One Honda Ham pane, white in colour with Chassis No. JHMGD173025215012, NSCDC ID card bearing one Kabiru Bashir, two (2) ATM cards, four (4) GSM handsets and the sum of one hundred and twenty-six (N126, 000:00K) were recovered in their possession during police search .
