Just In: Police operatives arrest 6 persons with deadly firearms in Katsina

About six men have been charged to court by the police operatives in Katsina State for alleged criminal conspiracy, illegal possession of prohibited firearms and belonging to a gang of thieves.

Those accused of the heinous crime are Umaru Abdullahi, 35, of Tundun Dole village in the Safana Local Government Area of the state; Muazu Jika, Nashe Jika, Dahiru Jika, Bala Jika, and Shadde Usman.

Katsina post, however, learned that only one of the accused persons, Umaru Abdullahi, was arraigned before the Katsina Senior Magistrates’ Court on Thursday who was apprehended by members of the vigilante group at Tsaskiya in the Safana Local Government Area of the state recently.

During the court proceedings, the police prosecutor, ASP Sani Ado, told the court that investigation into the matter was still in progress, explaining that the other accused persons were still at large and that efforts were on to apprehend them.

The offenses, according to him, contravene provisions of section 97 and 3(1) of the Robbery and Firearms Act, LFN, 2004, as amended as well as Section 306 of the Penal Code Law.

Umaru Abdullahi is strongly suspected to be a member of the gang of thieves terrorizing Tsaskiya, Hummadau and Tundun Dole in the local government area and he allegedly named his other accomplices during interrogation.

He was also said to have confessed that the Ak-47 rifle used by the gang for cattle rustling was with a member called Mua’azu Jika, who resides with other members in the Rugu Forest.

Abdullahi reportedly said he contributed N100,000 to purchase the rifle.

The presiding magistrate, Hajiya Fadile Dikko, adjourned the case till July 18, 2019, for mention.

She directed that Abdullahi be remanded in prison custody till then.
